Saskatchewan Change Day e-book launched


Thank you to everyone who supported the second annual Saskatchewan Change Day campaign!

Saskatchewan Change Day, which was organized by the Health Quality Council (HQC), was celebrated on November 5, 2015. More than 1,430 pledges to improve health and health care were made throughout the campaign – surpassing last year’s total of 1,397 pledges.

The theme of the 2015 Saskatchewan Change Day campaign was “Make Health Better Together.” Pledges focused on improving personal health, workplace health, and the health of patients, clients, and residents.

A commemorative e-book has been created to document the campaign and to share inspiring stories about some of the pledges that were made by Saskatchewan residents.
