Wellness and Equity for Life Science Undergraduate Students (WELLUS) St George

WELLUS is an initiative which strives to create greater awareness of health equity while also providing support for the mental well-being of Life Science students or students who wish to work in Medicine and Healthcare and who also belong to marginalized communities. As immigrants and as people of colour, far too many times do we endure healthcare inequities which only further exacerbate the divisions within communities. Healthcare inequity pertains to the barriers and unfair treatment which hinder certain individuals from obtaining the care they require to achieve their optimal health. Our greatest hope for this project is to make WELLUS a space for student communities to learn more about health inequity and mental health resources. Members can expect to participate in regular events and be updated on resources for marginalized communities, including research opportunities, awards and mental health gift baskets.
