The Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health (SWITCH) and Molson Coors Canada teamed up to serve Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, October 10th at SWITCH from 11am – 1:30pm.  With help from sponsorship support, Molson Coors Canada employees, and student volunteers,  SWITCH  served a turkey dinner to residents of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.  In addition to employees lending a helping hand, Molson Coors Canada made a $7500.00 donation to SWITCH.

One of only four student managed primary health care centers in Canada, SWITCH operates an after-hours inter professional wellness centre which is managed by student volunteers from the University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina and SIAST in the disciplines of medicine, nursing, social work, clinical psychology, pharmacy, nutrition, kinesiology, physical therapy, public health, arts and science, educational psychology and dentistry.  Students provide clinical, social and program services and are mentored by professionals from those same disciplines and more.  Together, they provide holistic health care to residents of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.

Cheers to Sastachewan Sales Manager Devin Baxter and the Saskatoon sales team for playing their part to make their community a better place!
