Health in Common News



Our 2015-16 Annual Report shares news of our ongoing work across many different communities and sectors, highlighting the various projects we have worked on over the past year.



Many thanks to all of the executive directors who joined us last month for a warm breakfast and conversation around what it means to be a healthy organization. To see photos from the event, check out our Facebook page!

Didn’t make it but want to join us in December for an opportunity to speed network and exchange ideas around implementing strategic plans? Space is limited — register today!

Each time you attend a breakfast, your name will be entered into a draw for up to two days of Health in Common services. The draw will be made at the last breakfast on February 16th, 2017.
