How are you managing home life?

Posted by in Employees, Health and Wellness

With restrictions in Toronto, and far too much familiarity with family and roommates, how will you make the holidays special this year or the winter more pleasant? There are only three of us in my family, so I have to be inventive. I’m tasking each of them to make one spectacular recipe each week in December.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which certainly nobody expected as we began the last academic year, we experienced challenges like never before.  Like every other college and university across Canada, on-campus classes and laboratories came to a grinding halt, but through the perseverance of our students, faculty and staff we were able to quickly transition to online learning and working.  Our Class of 2020 students all completed their clinical…read more
