The Teachers became the Students…

Earlier this month we practiced what we preach: Francine Deroche (http://ow.ly/FDbok ) led HiC staff and board through a strategic planning session. Besides being fun (in a geeky planner kind of way), we now have ideas to chart HiC’s course over the next three years. Onward!

Happy Holidays!

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season from all of us at Health in Common!

 Let’s talk about SEX!

We’ve partnered with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) to talk to young people about healthy sexuality and condom use.  Winnipeggers 16-24 years old are invited to fill out a confidential survey – and can enter to win an iPad!
The survey will be open until the end of 2014 so feel free to pass along the poster below to any organization working directly with young people. Give Sara (scastagna@healthincommon.ca) a shout for more information or condoms with the survey link.
