HC Link and Community YWCA of Muskoka are pleased to invite you to a one-day regional forum to learn about ways to foster community connectedness and its impact on the social determinants of health and well-being.

At this forum, you will hear about the positive influence of social connectedness on our health and well-being and the relationship between social determinants of health and well-being. You will also learn about why women may be at a greater disadvantage when facing determinants of health. This event features a keynote presentation by Dr. Rosanna Pellizzari, Medical Officer of health, Peterborough County-City Health Unit, and an engaging drumming circle led by Barry Hayward.

The purpose of this event is to bring people together involved in building healthy communities in Muskoka, Simcoe, Haliburton, City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland County and Peterborough regions to share ways to address social determinants of health and build more connected communities.

Cost:  $40 (includes breakfast and lunch)
