Health in Common News

Tobacco Tackle

In June, Jann traveled to beautiful Cormorant Lake School and Ruth Betts Elementary in northern Manitoba to chat with students involved in the Northern Health Region Tobacco Tackle program. Students demonstrated their knowledge of the health risks of tobacco use, and shared stories of how they took local action to encourage community members, family and friends to stop smoking.

Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties (MARL)

This past week, Anna and Jann spent an afternoon with MARL staff, summer interns, and youth action committee members to develop an evaluation plan for the school-based Youth Leadership Program. Through brainstorming and conversation, the group landed on four key questions to guide MARL’s evaluation, identified information needed to answer these questions, and started to pull together a plan to guide implementation of evaluation activities.
