Great news! We have been recognized by the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, Social Accountability and Community Engagement (SACE) for our “outstanding commitment to the health and wellbeing of British Columbia’s children and youth”. Our proposal: “Many voices one song”: A partnership to promote parental skills and confidence” has been funded. We are partnering with Vancouver Native Health to develop a new module for all new parents.
