The Drop-In and Community Apartment Program hosted, in partnership with Vancouver Coastal Health, a free three-day Healthy Living workshop called ‘First Steps to Prevention’. The goal of the workshop was to create a relaxed, fun and informative environment where a dietitian and a nurse educate clients about healthy eating, physical activity and overall wellness. The clients’ have enjoyed getting their height and blood pressure measured and taking part in group exercises. The biggest highlight was receiving their pedometer so they could see who could take the most steps in a day! Overall the course was very successful in supporting clients and providing them with resources needed to take steps towards leading a healthy life.
