October 15, 1-4 pm; Charlottetown, PEI


This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Circle of Health - join us to celebrate this PEI contribution to health promotion that is used in communities around the world! To celebrate, a workshop on the Circle of Health will be held in advance of the 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion, an international event coming to Charlottetown, PEI on October 16-17, 2016.

Join us at the Rodd Charlottetown, the ‘birthplace’ of the Circle of Health, to reflect on its development 20 years ago and to learn how it has contributed to the practice of health promotion nationally and internationally. This pre-Forum workshop is hosted by The Quaich Inc.


Learn about the Circle of Health from a panel of international and Canadian speakers sharing their experience with the Circle in education, research, policy and practice. Gain hands-on experience with the Circle of Health in small groups led by the panelists. Develop an understanding of how to use the Circle of Health to work across sectors and silos – one of the greatest challenges facing communities and governments today!


This half-day workshop is available at a special rate of $50 per person, $20 for students.

For those who are unable to attend the 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion, but would still like to connect with delegates and health leaders from the event, this Pre-Forum workshop is an excellent opportunity for learning and networking at an affordable rate and manageable time commitment.
