FMWC Wellness Challenge

The Federation of Medical Women of Canada mission statement outlines our goals of working towards “[...] the promotion of the well-being of women both in the medical profession and in society at large.”

As such, our Wellness Challenge aims to highlight the wellness activities our women physicians, residents, and students engage in across the nation in hopes of promoting overall health and resiliency. In doing so, our hope is to encourage the importance of taking time for oneself, well-being, and health and further, to promote the notion that this act can take many forms.
