About UQ Wellbeing

UQ Wellbeing is a Health Promotion Project for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities. It is a new initiative that stems from the goals of UQ's Student life Plan 2018 - 2021. The project aims to increase the overall health and wellbeing of students from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds by working in partnership with students. 

What is health promotion?
