A special shout  out to our newest ATAC team member, Professor Sharon Kaasalainen and to  McMaster Health Sciences for sponsoring the event, with the support of Aging Together As Community.

Thank  you to all who came out to our last ATAC meeting at the Haliburton  Legion where our amazing Research Coordinator, Kat Schouten gave the  results of our Community Mapping and Survey. (it was a full page ad, in  the papers) Lots of great information came out of those break-out  sessions.

Stay tuned to see how you can get involved in a meeting in the near future and offer further support to ATAC.

There is lots of momentum building about the Ontario Health Coalition Spring/Summer Campaign, Hands Across Ontario, Protect Our Public Health Care
