BC Healthy Communities (BCHC) and Northern Health (NH) are hosting their fifth year of 'Citizens Series’ webinars'. These two hour sessions invite dialogue from northern communities on specific topics that are critical to improving the health outcomes of northern people, recognizing that community and civic involvement is a cornerstone to healthy people and populations.

Engaging community members in the planning and development of healthier communities can be at once the most difficult and most rewarding thing to accomplish.

Join us for this session on the promises and perils of community engagement, practical tools, approaches and real-life examples from northern communities.
