Health and Wellness Week

It was our vision to engage, educate, and provide various activities, that prioritizes healthy living and foster wellness habits over a week long period. UWI-ROYTEC, hosted its Annual Health and Wellness Week over the period 27th March – 01st April 2017 which culminated in a Hike to Gasparee Caves and then a relaxation cool down on Monos island. This week is part of an ongoing drive toward supporting our students while pursuing their studies to encourage healthy life habits.
