On February 12th, right in the heart of the winter, Debajehmujig Storytellers was delighted to work with our local Family Health Team in Mindemoya to host the Northern Ontario Medical School students in a day long exercise to explore communications, interviewing and identification of underlying issues that may be responsible for what the patient is presenting.

The Manitoulin Central and Municipality of Assiginack Family Health Teams and Debajehmujig Storytellers are pleased to bring the CIHR Café Scientifique, a new and exciting way of sharing and learning, to Manitoulin Island. Free refreshments and snacks will be provided. Following the presentations, participants will be able to ask questions in an open question and answer format.

The Six Foot Initiative began in the garden in the summer of 2009 with a project called Thrive – A Community Collaboration in the Gardens. Artists Elisha Sidlar and Jessica Wilde Peltier worked with a group of young women to establish a garden and creatively explore their relationship to nourishment. The group included Sabrina Mishibinijima, Courtenay Peltier, Chenya Brissard, Taashiina Brissard, and Nani Bell.
