Scent-Free Policy

The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry is raising awareness with all staff, faculty and students about the use of scents and fragrances.

Scents have been known to cause irritation of the eyes, throat and nose for some individuals with allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions. They can also cause health effects such as dizziness, headaches, skin irritation, fatigue and other symptoms for some people. Individuals situated within hospitals will be well aware of scent-free policies. We encourage everyone to promote a scent-free environment across the School.
