Annual Gatherings

Once each year, members are of the Central Regional Wellness Coalition are invited to come together for a day of learning, connecting, networking and story telling.  The Annual Gathering is an opportunity for all to share ideas about existing and future health and wellness initiatives in our communities, and to celebrate past accomplishments.  Ideas for the day are inspired by our many networking members, health professionals, community groups and organizations who all share a passion for ensuring our citizens in Central Newfoundland can enjoy optimal health and well-being.

Annual Gatherings

Networking Days

The Central Regional Wellness Coalition Networking Days are an opportunity for citizens and community groups from a specific health service site to gather for a more in-depth discussion on a health and wellness topic that is relevant to their area. Organized by health professionals in partnership with community stakeholders, these days highlight local community initiatives and guest speakers are often invited to present on topics important to the groups attending.  If you have an idea for a Networking Day in your health site, we’d love to hear about it!
