Healthy Living Projects in New Brunswick

New Brunswick’s Provincial Wellness Network

Organization

Canadian Cancer Society, New Brunswick Division

Description

New Brunswick’s Provincial Wellness Network is a project of the Canadian Cancer Society, New Brunswick Division. This province-wide initiative will support local action to increase the number of New Brunswickers who are physically active, eat healthy foods and maintain healthy weights. New Brunswick currently has several wellness networks serving specific communities, populations or regions. The Provincial Wellness Network (PWN) will support these local groups in their efforts to create healthy public policy, increase awareness of wellness issues, enhance life skills and encourage lifestyle changes. The PWN will build capacity and facilitate collaboration among local networks by creating a PWN website, hiring community developers and producing healthy living messages for distribution via website, webinars and newsletters.
