The Cancer Prevention and Screening Innovation team partnered with Population, Public and Indigenous Health, My Health Alberta, multiple strategic clinical networks and other vital AHS partners to create a website that provides Albertans with consistent, reliable, evidence-informed prevention information.
Healthier Together is designed to target primary prevention and complement the secondary prevention resource, MyHealthAlberta.ca. No matter where Albertans are – at work, in their communities, at home or in a healthcare setting – our team wants them to have easy access to information, tools and proven strategies that make it easier to take action. Our goal is to give everyone a fair chance for health and encourage entire communities making changes toward healthier ways of living and working. Together, we can.
- To create a single interactive prevention website consisting of tools, information and resources to drive healthy behaviour change in Albertans where they get healthcare, live, work and play.
- Reinforce the broader vision of AHS: Healthy Albertans. Healthy Communities. Together.
