Health in Common News

Going in a New Direction

Jann and Anna completed a third full day of evaluation training with New Directions staff in April. Working with staff from four different programs, we have been knee deep, talking about the importance of stakeholder engagement and defining the purpose of an evaluation. All programs have developed evaluation questions for their programs and identified indicators to measure progress and success. This past week we focused on data collection methods – quantitative and qualitative – and when to use them. Next up – graduation week! All groups will finish their draft evaluation plans and share them with each other for feedback. Looking forward to the discussion!

Let’s Talk About SEX!

Do you live in Winnipeg?
Are you 18-24?

If you answered yes to all three questions, the WRHA, along with us at Health in Common, want to hear from you!
