Thank you Carol, for being such a fabulous volunteer and sharing our enthusiasm for creating healthier communities!

Congratulations to the Algoma Youth Engagement Network!

OHCC was thrilled to present the Sheila Lupson Healthy Communities Recognition Award to the Agoma Youth Engagement Network (AYEN) at the 2015 OHCC Annual General Meeting.  

The nomination noted:

AYEN’s story and values strongly reflect a Healthy Communities approach. So much has been accomplished through collaborative exchange, vision and commitment from such a broad range of partners. Furthermore, their motivations — equity, empowerment and well being for youth — are key to building and advancing Healthy Communities.
