Healthy Start/Départ Santé, along with three other provincial health promotion groups – Health Promoting Schools Program, MEND, and Saskatchewan in motion – will be hosting a provincial health promotion forum the evening of June 19, 2014 (5-7 pm social), and all day June 20, 2014 at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK. The forum will bring together key actors, stakeholders, and decision makers from across Saskatchewan and abroad, and will focus on informing concrete actions for stronger partnerships aligned with provincial strategies and priorities – ultimately, ‘Moving Forward on Healthy, Active Kids!’.
The forum will feature a keynote address, panel sessions, and breakout/discussion groups, where dialogue, sharing of ideas, and forging/expanding collaborations to create greater opportunity for healthy active children, youth and their families will be highly encouraged.
Three main objectives will be at the centre of the gathering:
- Exploring synergies for greater impact on the health of children, youth, and families
- Advancing the province’s priority of a 5% reduction in childhood obesity
- Assessing long-term sustainability and funding opportunities for healthy weights initiatives in the future in Saskatchewan.
All those interested in joining the discussion are encouraged to check back here regularly for updates on registration and further details; or please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any other inquiries. Additional details can be found here.
