UCC Health Matters – get involved!

As you may be aware today is UCC Health Matters Day. A programme of events which captures the quantity of events is available to staff and students’.   Due to this morning’s weather, several of the events  have been moved to the Students’ Centre which gives people a wonderfully compressed environment in which to fully engage with the programme.
