Strengthening Collaborative Relationships: Building Healthy Communities Together


There are many people involved in building healthy communities. This one day regional forum will bring together those people: community partners, public health staff, health promotion and recreation professionals, municipal staff, elected officials, and decision-makers to explore ways to work together to build healthy communities. The forum will include sessions on how these various partners can work together and frame the issues they are working on in a way that aligns with the work of municipalities. Co-hosted by HC Link and the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit, the forum will feature Paul Young from HC Link and also profile community examples and stories from across the Northeast region of the province.
