Community Health Centres change health -- and change lives.
Join MP Kent Hehr as he chats with Joy Bowen-Eyre, who is the newly minted Chief Executive Officer of the Alex Community Health Centre. She was the former chair of the Calgary Board of Education and has long been recognized as a leader in Calgary's social services community. A social worker in a previous life, she worked at McMan Youth and Family Services, served as the Director of Government Relations at the United Way of Calgary, and has been an advocate for Calgarians for decades. Give us a listen!
Ever since I was first elected, more than a decade ago, I have made it a priority to join students as part of their democracy unit. Every year tens of thousands of students from across Alberta learn the basics of democracy: from the Greeks, to Canada, and how our community makes decisions.
And, at the end of the unit, I come in to give them a bit of a quiz, a bit of a back and forth, and I take their questions. Listen in as we chat about the incredible thing that we create together: democracy.
