Community Leaders

Active Communities are Healthy Communities

Our community leaders ensure that CCGA initiatives optimally support widespread implementation and impacts on health. They often work directly in the development and realization of prototypes and strategies, informing their design and implementation to ensure that communities receive the full benefits from Group Appointments.

If you think your community would benefit from Group Appointments contact the CCGA. We can assist you in realizing a better way to manage and prevent chronic diseases amongst your co-workers and colleagues, community members and loved ones.
