Students Research Choices for Increased Well-Being

Jan 5, 2018 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) –On Tuesday, Canadore College’s School of Sport and Recreation students will be sharing their insights for adopting a healthy and active lifestyle after conducting in-depth research.

For the seventh consecutive year, the student health fair will showcase the efforts of students in the programs’ introduction to leisure and recreation class. A work assignment tasked each team of students to raise awareness of a predominant health issue faced by college students through research. They also had to define solutions to overcome the concern, including outlining community resources to help them make better choices.

“The topic of health and well-being can be so very confusing,” said Michelle Cundari, professor in Canadore’s School of Sport and Recreation. “Researching health is also a very difficult task, seeing as there are so many prevalent opinions and these assumptions also change over time. This is an amazing exercise to build critical thinking in our students, and I’m really proud of their work.”

Informative and interactive displays on the importance of stress management and coping mechanisms, alcohol prevention, healthy eating and the benefits of pet therapy will be showcased.

Attendees are encouraged to complete a passport to win healthy living prizes.
