Wednesday, Feb 21
12 - 3:30 p.m.

In this world cafe, we will explore the meaning of "primary health care" as a holistic model of health care. We'll explore: 

-ways to better engage community members in developing health programs and health promotion initiatives in ways that meet their needs
-ways to work "upstream" to prevent people from getting sick to begin with
-ways to promote people's health through the co-creation of healthy communities
-ways to enable health care workers to work in collaboration with diverse communities and multiple levels of government in this upstream healing and health promotion work. 

Come join us for a light lunch, guest speakers, and presentations from VCC nursing students on the health promotion work they have been engaged in, in collaboration with diverse community partners. We'll then engage in conversations across dialogue tables to explore ways that we can collectively advocate for developing our health care system in a way that supports people to thrive in their communities.
