CORK COMMUNITY HEALTH NETWORK
Date: Thursday, 19th April.

Venue: Ballyphehane Togher CDP, Lower Friars Walk, Ballyphehane (across the road from Ballyphehane Church).
Please share this information with as many colleagues as possible...
The organisers are proposing a short, informal, lunch-time meeting (rotating to different venues) about four times per year (March, May, September and November). They are interested in creating a new opportunity for community and voluntary groups to share experience of working to promote healthy communities, to share our best practice and to identify collective themes. They would like the meetings to be informative, supportive and useful and they hope this network will provide an opportunity for participants to learn from each other, to strengthen themselves, to look at quality and standards, and also to feed into public policy, such as the Cork Healthy City Initiative.
A simple format is being proposed for each network meeting, as follows: brief introductions; four or five six-minute slide picture presentations followed by a short open discussion. The proposal is to use the ‘Pecha Kucha20x20’ format for the slide presentations – and the organisers have four volunteer groups for the first session already lined up.
How to Get Involved
Membership of the network is open: please share this information with as many colleagues as possible.
