(May 2021 - July 2021)
The Goal of Health Promotion is to bridge the gap between individuals and the healthcare system, advocating and informing how individuals should manage their health. Our presentation covered various topics: primary health services provided bh AHS, general health information and information access. For new immigrants or individuals not familiar with English, we informed them how to access healthcare information and resources in various languages. A multilingual supplementary pamphlet was created in order to reach a wider audience.
