Group Name: The Anne Johnston Health Station – Teens Cooking with Body and Mind (BAM)
Description: The Anne Johnston Health Station (AJHS) is a not-for-profit community health centre providing a wide range of programs and services that promote the health and well-being of youth, seniors and people with physical disabilities. They are a fully accessible barrier free environment. All of our programs and services are confidential and free of charge and include primary health care, disease prevention, health promotion and community development. We believe that health is a resource for life and that many things – education, housing, gender, access to health services, our sense of being included or excluded from society, employment, etc. – impact on our health. Health isn’t just about not being sick, it is about being able to make choices and live into them. It’s about having a voice in our community. They are guided by our mission, vision and values. The Anne Johnston Health Station is governed by a Board of Directors elected from our membership.
Learn how to prepare quick and healthy meals with our registered dietitian while talking about issues that impact youth.
