5 Ways to Get Moving with Move UBC this February!

Move UBC is a university-wide annual initiative to increase physical activity and reduce the time students, staff, faculty and the UBC community spend sitting. Small changes can add up to big impacts—moving more and sitting less can improve both mental and physical health, impact academic and professional success, and contribute to wellbeing in meaningful ways. This February, make movement apart of your day by getting involved with Move UBC. Check out 5 ways students can get moving:
