We are pleased to share a video of a panel discussion about the Circle of Health - a PEI contribution to health promotion that is used in communities around the world!

In this video, you will learn about the Circle of Health from a panel of international and Canadian speakers sharing their experience with the Circle in education, research, policy and practice.
