HEALTH PROMOTION

At the health centre we have a strong focus on illness prevention and health promotion, in addition to treating illness. Health promotion builds on individual and community strengths to improve health and well-being.

In promoting health we look also at determinants of health. These are broad factors that affect health like income, housing, social environments, etc. In our role to promote health we may address some of these issues through the development of supports, advocacy, or programs and services.

Health promotion activities may involve:
Community Networking
We work with community groups to identify concerns and develop action plans to improve the health of our communities through:
Resource Library
We have a resource library available for all community members. You may borrow books and videos on a wide variety of health topics. The resource library is located in the main waiting area of each health centre site.
