The Coalitions provide opportunities for people to become involved in community action around the issues that affect their health and well-being. Coalitions provide leadership, coordination and support for local wellness initiatives. They build partnerships by bringing together individuals, groups and organizations interested in working together on common wellness issues in their local regions. Activities may include advocating for healthy public policy, administering community grants to enhance local wellness projects, or developing and delivering community wellness programs.

The Wellness Coalition-Avalon East is supported by the provincial government through the Provincial Wellness Plan and the Department of Health and Community Services, and by Eastern Health.

Welcoming Our New Co-Chair

new co-chairOne of the benefits of being involved in this coalition is getting to share the co-chair leadership role with some fabulous people from community organizations that work tirelessly to promote wellness.

For the past four years, Jim Crockwell of MacMorran Community Centre has shared the helm at the Steering Committee. Now the role of Co-chair (Community) passes to Jeff Pinsent, Fitness and Active Lifestyles Coordinator, Department of Community Services, City of St. John's. And like Jim, Jeff will no doubt bring his own style and own knowledge of wellness and community to help strengthen our network and create healthier places where we live, learn, work and play. Thank you Jim and Jeff!
