Healthy Workplace Month is here!

This October, UHN celebrates Healthy Workplace Month. The goals of Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month is to increase awareness of three elements key to a healthy workplace:
• Health and lifestyle practices – the personal choices you make each day
• Workplace culture and a supportive environment – our psychosocial work environment
• Physical environment and occupational health and safety – our workplace surroundings.

At UHN we’re fortunate to have a healthy workplace program which many of you take part in. To celebrate the importance of health and well-being this month, UHN’s wellness program is offering a multitude of activities throughout the month of October, including:
– Wellness activity booths at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret, and Toronto Rehab’s University Centre, Bickle and Lyndhurst lobbies, with freebies, information, prize options and seated massages
– Free exercise and yoga classes
– Cooking classes
– Creative arts programs

We look forward to seeing you all come out and join us!

About alirunner

Officially: Wellness Manager at UHN; background - Physiotherapy (what a portable profession that turned out to be!). Outside of work I'm a student (part-time U of T), mom of 2 teenagers (super, super scary) and wanna-be marathon runner with a first marathon goal date of October 16, 2011. Likes: FOOD, food and food (the real reason that I run), getting outdoors, seeing new places, G n T's and newly discovered carb-loaded gel packs that enable one to keep on running...What else? Arrived from UK 20 years ago to work in Canada for a year and still not visited Italy.
