Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) Capacity Building Workshop

Reigniting Your Rural Community Engagement Strategies

April 15, 2021, 11:00 am to12:00 pm (MT)

Tamarack Institute, a Canadian based organization recognized as an international leader in community change education, will be leading an online session called Reigniting Your Rural Community Engagement Strategies

Most of us are experiencing realities where the old way of doing things is no longer possible. How do we engage our communities, and attract and retain connections, when we can’t gather? How can we be creative and do things differently? How can we focus on what’s possible instead of on the limitations? Join Lisa Attygalle, Consulting Director of Community Engagement at the Tamarack Institute, and together we will think through how to reignite your rural community engagement strategies to suit our current times.

 We hope you are able to join us for this session.
