Alberta Healthy Community Symposium 2019
Communities ChooseWell and the Alberta Cancer Prevention Legacy Fund are partnering once again to bring you the annual Alberta Healthy Community Symposium! The event will be held in Edmonton, March 7-8, 2019 and will focus on ‘Connecting Changemakers’. Changemakers use a deep-rooted sense of empathy for others, identify a specific problem or opportunity to tackle, and give themselves permission to do something about it. Communities ChooseWell and ACPLF are excited to bring together wellness changemakers and offer supports to help grow healthy change across Alberta.
