The Health and Well-being Program invites McGill employees to participate in our challenges related to Health and Well-Being.
|February- April 2021||The Healthier Together Challenge|

|JANUARY 2020||This month, in line with the My Healthy Workplace theme TAKE NOTICE, we challenge you to take notice of how often you buy your lunch, and instead bring your lunch to work for 4 consecutive weeks starting in January. Bringing your lunch can have numerous benefits such as financial savings and healthier choices. But do not let it chain you to your desk. Plan a brown bag lunch date with a friend or colleague. Participants will be entered in a draw to win a sustainable lunch kit. Click here for details on how to take part.
