Rocking out at Dawson VIB event March 29

April 5th, 2023

A lively event stopped by Dawson on March 29 to move and inspire students and staff. The VIB event is touring campuses across Quebec to promote well-being and health. The event featured a Pound also known as “rocking out” workout, pictured; photo courtesy of RSEQ.

One of College Nurse Julie Gosselin’s student health ambassadors reported: “The participants really enjoyed the event and they liked their free merch. People seemed to really enjoy the Pound session as well since most of them had never done it before

“I think the event was really cool! It was a great way to promote physical activity during a time period when students are stressed and tend to forget the little things we should do to stay healthy.”
