Friends for Life Women’s Wellness and Leadership Project Gathering

The Friends for Life Women’s Wellness and Leadership Project was designed to support women on their own path to health and wellness. Women throughout British Columbia received financial grants, through funding provided by Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA), to support their self-directed health and education opportunities.

All grant applicants from across British Columbia were invited to attend the Women’s Wellness and Leadership conference on March 10, 2020 at the Civic Hotel in Surrey, B.C. on the unceded traditional territory of the Semiahmoo, Katzie Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Qayqayt and Tsawwassen First Nations.

The conference was designed to bring together all the women who participated in the grant process to share and celebrate their personal experiences. The day’s activities promoted community and sharing in a meaningful way.

We are grateful to all the Friends for Life staff, volunteers, Pacific AIDS Network (PAN) and PHSA, who helped make this conference a success. Thank you.
