AIMGA’s health and wellness team meetings are held on Fridays from 9:30 to 10:30 am. This group was formerly known as our COVID Response Team which had been formed to assist AHS with the Cargill Food Outbreak. Our members called employees to educate them in first languages and created video-mediated materials in 19+ languages to educate newcomers in Alberta about COVID19 and the vaccine. These video-mediated materials are available on our HealthHub page on our website and we encourage you to share these. Our members have also conducted webinars in first languages and in English to newcomers enrolled in ESL/LINC classes and in the community. We’ve now launched AIMGA’s HealthHub for Newcomers.
The health and wellness team meetings are informal discussions on updates around COVID, the vaccine, and other health-related topics. We’ve had various guest speakers and presentations on community and research initiatives. Every 3rd Friday of the month, one of our members presents the latest chapter in an epidemiology book we are reading.
