Our Health & Nutrition Promoter is an important part of the Mamaway care team, providing activities and workshops to promote healthy strategies for children, youth, and adults. Our health and nutrition promotion programs are community-based – focused on empowerment, self-wellness and positivity.
Wellness And Vitality
As part of Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin’s interprofessional team, we help increase participants’ wellness and vitality, while helping lower the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and other health conditions that are prevalent in Indigenous populations.
We do this by providing knowledge, understanding and skills – giving you the strategies to make healthy lifestyle choices that benefit you and your loved ones. We partner with our regional Indigenous organizations to make these workshops and activities available to each geographical area.
Our popular supports and workshops include:
– Balancing Self
– Diabetes management
– Exploring our relationship with food
– Foot care 101
– Healing through Art Therapy
– Land based activities honouring Mother Earth
– Meal Preparation & Balanced nutrition education
– Power of the Breath
