Thanks to all of you that joined us for our 6th Annual Life Balance Fair – Life-Work Harmony… Working Toward A Great Life! We hope the perspectives offered by our exhibitors, as well as the demonstrations and information sessions, will help you improve your workplace health in order to optimize personal and organizational performance. Finding balance in our personal and professional lives is an ongoing challenge, but an important piece to continue to highlight.

The Wellness Committee would like to congratulate Nancy Metz (Prentice Institute) on winning a Chef Michael Smith Cook Book for submitting her recipe to the Submit your Healthy Recipe Challenge.

A special thanks to Auburn Phillips (Counselling Services), Kristi Masuda (Health Sciences - Student Program Advising) and Abigail McMeekin (Modern Languages) for entering their recipes into the contest. A copy of all the recipes can be found at

The ‘Off Balance Team Challenge’ (a $250.00 catering gift certificate from LA Chefs) went to Scholarships and Finance who (pro-rated) had the most people from their department attend.

The Wellness Committee would also like to congratulate Lorainne Armstrong and Carolyn Gaebel on winning the Bring A Friend Challenge. They are the winners of at home fitness DVDs - yoga kit and core kit.

And a round of applause goes out to all of our door prize winners!
