Launch of UWI Moves


Blessed by showers of rain, a Mona Moves Health and Wellness Day organised by the Campus Registrar’s office was held on March 16, 2023 from 9:30 am – 4:00 pm.  The day marked the official launch of the UWI Moves programme developed by the Mona Academy of Sport and signified a campus wide initiative to promote health and wellness.

Dean Mansingh in his address reminded the audience that non-communicable diseases account for about 60% of all deaths and that physical inactivity is the fourth largest risk factor of death in developing countries.  Further, with regular exercise, health costs can be reduced by about 15% in the latter part of life in general.

Persons wishing to sign up for the programme should contact the Sports Medicine Clinic at (876) 927-1660 – 9 Ext. 8145 or (876) 429-0437.  A health assessment will be done for each client prior to starting the programme.
