Your health is your greatest resource — during university and after! The things you do day-to-day have a tremendous impact on your health, and in turn, on your academic and professional success.

At the weekly wellness outreach, Concordians can speak with a health-promotion specialist, book an appointment on the spot, and pick up some reliable, evidence-based information on how they can improve their health and reach their health goals.

Many Concordians are not up-to-date in their vaccines; this puts them at higher risk of getting and spreading infections.

That’s why the Routine Adult Vaccine Program, exists. Make an appointment today to review your history, ask questions and receive any shots you may be missing.
