Thought I would bring some attention to a project being done at Western University.
A group of medical students at Schulich have been involved in the Vitals Student Wellness Initiative which launched last fall.
The project looks to support student wellness during undergraduate medical training through a website centralizing campus and community resources, workshops and awareness activities.
For a more in depth look at what Vitals is doing check out the Student Spotlight by the CFMS or follow @WesternVitals. Vitals has also been promoted by the OMSA and is a finalist in the Mental Health 2.0 competition (Alt Link). Descriptions of all the finalists can be found here (Alt Link) and voting is open to decide the People’s Choice Award until March 3.
Followup: Vitals Student Wellness Initiative placed 3rd overall and won the People’s Choice Award.
