A Healthier You (November 2014)

Where does the time go?! We are already at our 12th edition of A Healthier You! Brought to you by Northern Health and Glacier Media, the magazine is produced four times a year. Articles are written by northerners for northerners and cover a broad range of topics.

Have you ever thought that today’s youth are unengaged or less healthy? Well, this issue proves you wrong! All around northern B.C., youth are engaged and taking on great tasks to make their communities healthier places to live. For example, check out Myles Matilla’s great work promoting youth mental wellness and We also highlight ways to get kids engaged in their personal health and wellness, including healthy meal preparation, physical activity, and more!

In addition to the Northern Health and Prince George Citizen staff, we want to thank the YMCA of Northern BC, First Nations Health Authority, and the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation for their contributions to this edition.
