This program is multi-disciplinary in nature, drawing from the fields of leadership; mental, physical, and psychological health; business and communication; and knowledge translation. All combined, students acquire the competencies to develop proactive, evidence-based workplace health and wellness programs and health promotion programs. You will develop the skills to promote employee health, workplace culture, engagement, and retention.

Using a team approach, learners will work collaboratively with one another and with faculty to apply key principles of workplace health and wellness to real-world scenarios. Principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as ethical and legal practices, are built into the content and application of your learning. Learners will be well prepared to help individuals and companies attain their health and wellness goals.
