Event description

Description

The goal of this one day workshop is to enable people offering community-based peer support in Saskatchewan to build relationships and establish a network of support for people with breast cancer. Join us in building connections, sharing knowledge and strenthening skills. We are very excited to have Danielle VandeZande from the Canadian Cancer Society facilitate the day for us. Our objectives are to:

* Leverage new and existing group activity to build a network of support across Saskatchewan

* Identify what is needed to sustain this network and plan next steps
