More than 700 people from 63 countries attended this year’s (Im)migrant Health and Wellness Forum, hosted in partnership by the (Im)migrant Health and Wellness Network and ISANS on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the Halifax Forum’s Multipurpose Centre.
“There was something in the air,” said Zrinka Seles-Vranjes, Coordinator of ISANS Immigrant Health Program. “We’ve run this event for 11 years now, and this year was one of the best.”
Attendees spent the day learning about and experiencing safety (which was this year’s Forum topic), health, and wellness related services from thirty-five service providers. Two workshops hosted by Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency Services and the Department of Labour and Advanced Education provided information about fire safety and Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHIMIS) respectively. Halifax Regional Fire and Halifax Regional Police also had a fire truck and police car outside for visitors to explore.
