Over 600 Blood Donations through U of G's Partners for Life team in 2022! New goal set!

In 2022, U of G set a goal of 515 donations to Canadian Blood Services through the Partners for Life program. With the support of all U of G community members, we were able to contribute 603 blood donations! 

If you didn’t know, it can often take more than one donor to save a life and there is a large shortage of blood donations across Canada!

Wellness@Work wishes you a restful holiday season and invites you to make room for wellness this winter. This January, whether you are looking to care for yourself through art, support your Smoke-Free Campus, or improve your physical well-being, we hope you find something that meets your needs. Stay safe and don't forget to walk like a penguin! Happy Holidays!
