We will be providing coffee, tea and water, but lunch is not provided. MHC Food Services are available on site. Please bring items you prefer to use for taking notes. We also encourage you to bring literature from your organization and business cards to exchange with other participants for networking. I missed out on registering for the session topic I want: We've limited the number of people who can participate in each round table. If the event is successful, we will look at holding other training days in the future. Who do I contact for more information: Email peggyr@mhwss.ca or phone 403-527-8223. What is the Family Violence Prevention Month Committee? This committee is lead by the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society and co-ordinates multiple events throughout November to mark Family Violence Prevention Month. We're grateful for the participation of McMan Youth, Family and Community Services Association, Medicine Hat Family Service, City of Medicine Hat, Medicine Hat SPCA, Saamis Immigration, Medicine Hat Public Library, Medicine Hat Police Service, Students' Association of Medicine Hat College, Indigenous Supports at Medicine Hat College, and Addictions & Mental Health Community Services.
