Health in Common News

Goodbye, Dan

This month we say goodbye to Dan, our Research and Technical Support guru. Dan has been with Health in Common for seven (!) years but has decided to follow his entrepreneurial heart and open Winnipeg’s newest escape room this summer.

Over the years, we’ve grown to rely on Dan’s attention to detail, his knack for data management and analysis, and his ability to fix computers by merely standing next to them (among other tech-savvy solutions). Thanks for bringing your positive attitude to work every day, and for sometimes bringing homemade ribs for lunch.

Best of luck on this new adventure, we will miss you!
