Northern Health launches Summer of Wellness campaign

Summer is a beautiful time to live in northern B.C. Sunshine, long days, and time spent with family and friends are just some of the things that contribute to one’s wellness. Northern Health is challenging you to think about what wellness means to you to be entered to win a grand prize. How do you grow your wellness during this time of year?

Summer of Wellness is a campaign to share examples of how you can stay healthy in the North and how you can become a positive role model in healthy living. A diverse range of topics will be represented, including: air quality, indigenous health, immunization, psychological work place health & safety, and general health throughout the summertime months.

Share what wellness means to you with one or more of the following: photograph, video, drawing, poem or story. All submissions must be received or post-dated by September 3 blog.northernhealth.ca/summerofwellness, or via ‘snail mail’. Submissions could:

  • Show us how you incorporate wellness at home, at work, or in the wild.
  • Showcase the healthy opportunities your community offers.
  • Focus on physical activity, healthy eating, injury prevention, mental wellness, tobacco reduction or more.

Not sure if your submission qualifies? We’d be happy to help! Contact us at healthpromotions@northernhealth.ca.  Be sure to share your wellness tips on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #healthynorth!

The campaign runs from July 1, 2017 to September 3, 2017. The goal of the campaign is to exemplify the Northern way of caring and promote wellness during the summertime months to those who live, learn, work, and play in our region.
