The Community Partners in Action group in Innisfail has some free information sessions coming up this Autumn.
Amber Thibault, who is with the group talks about the action group. "Community partners in action is a coalition that brings a bunch of different community stakeholders together in hopes that we can bridge the gap between our individual societies and organizations to better serve the communities."
Within Innisfail there are many organizations that are connected with the Community Partners in Action Group. Thibault talks about some of these partners. "So, for example, we have different social workers, we have nurses, we work with the medical clinic and primary care network, the Town of Innisfail, and family community Social Services. We try and just bring all our groups together so that we aren't repetitive in what we're offering the community but also, identifying the gaps and then serving them."
There are three free information sessions coming up this Fall for residents of Innisfail. The sessions will run on Tuesdays starting on September 26th and running until October 10th.

October 10th-Palliative care
A registered nurse coming in to talk about palliative care how it's not just focusing on death, but instead how you can live while you are doing this.
