Health and Wellness Blogs

Queen’s Home Kitchen is a collaborative project between Student Wellness Services, Health Promotion, and Peer Health Educator (PHE) volunteers. Two teams of volunteers, the Healthy Cooking Club & Healthy Eating Team, write and promote the blog posts.

Queen’s Home Kitchen aims to bring people together and foster a sense of community by connecting through food. PHE volunteers create and post content bi-weekly focusing on three main themes: recipes, food skills, and community.

Visit the Queen’s Home Kitchen website.

CampusWell is a health and wellness blog featuring articles written by Queen’s students and other university students on a wide range of topics. Students can find tailored content that can help improve their wellbeing, such as ways to effectively save money at Queen’s, menu planning strategies and tips, and how to stay active in the cold Kingston winters!
