Our project gives you a number of ways to get involved. You can attend any of our presentations or workshops at conferences or general meetings of ALIGN, CYCAA, AHVNA, ACWS, or ACDS. Or you can follow our Twitter, Facebook, or Blog postings and comment. In these ways you can grow your awareness about wellness and contribute to your agency and the human-services sector in Alberta.
