Soirée-cinéma « Enfants / Grands-parents » – Lundi 21 octobre à 18 h

This week gives us the opportunity to spotlight the everyday heroes at CSCE – including staff, volunteers and community members – who strive to build a healthier, more connected community. The week also highlights the local partnerships we have built, which enable us to help more people and change more lives in seamless and integrated ways.

“We know that unique barriers exist in Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell, that may limit peoples’ potential for total health and wellbeing,” says Marc Bisson, CSCE Executive Director. “That is why here at CSCE, we start by connecting with the people in our community – to learn about their needs, their ideas, experiences, and to get their feedback – and then connect with local partners to build a personalized approach to a healthier community.”

Focusing on local needs and barriers increases people’s capacity to stay healthy, and promotes trust between the community and health providers. “We work together to connect teams and people who build healthier communities, and those efforts benefit us all here in our community”, says Marc Bisson. “In a connected community, fewer people get sick, more people engage with their own wellbeing, and together we can reduce pressure and costs for the health care system.”

Community Health and Wellbeing Week is coordinated by the Alliance for Healthier Communities of which Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie is a member. Each of the more than 100 members of the Alliance is governed by its local community members, which equips them to orient services and programs to community needs and focus on populations facing barriers to their best possible health and wellbeing.

The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie cordially invites you to its Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, June 19th, 2019 at the NAV CENTRE.

Following the meeting, we will welcome Ms. Marilissa Gosselin, senior policy adviser on francophone affairs in Premier Doug Ford’s office, with conference on the theme “Faire avancer la francophonie”.

This free event will be held in French only.
