Loyalist to enhance Health and Wellness Centre with $2.4M federal contribution

October 14, 2016

Loyalist College is looking to help Canadians of all ages live healthy and fulfilling lives thanks to a new $2.4M federal and provincial investment in its Health and Wellness Centre. Loyalist will contribute an additional  $800K to bring the project’s total budget to $3.2M. The investments will be used to ensure that Loyalist’s students, professors, and researchers have access to state-of-the-art facilities where they can collaborate to support lifelong learning and skills training. “[The Centre] will create important synergies to help people of all ages live healthy, fulfilling lifestyles, in their homes and communities,” said Loyalist Interim President Dianne Spencer. “Thanks to [this funding], we will update key experiential learning spaces, including the Human Simulation Lab where students and community health partners use the latest virtual simulation technology to participate in realistic, interactive practice scenarios.” Loyalist | Quinte News | County Live
