Engage Breakfast Series | Keep better informed about complex regional issues.

The Engage breakfast series provides well-rounded and thought-provoking conversations about complex issues impacting the health of our community.

These morning discussions present issues from multiple angles and within the context of the community at large. By bringing thought leaders and decisions makers together for informed and inclusive discourse about the issues, participants are given a clear call-to-action to find collaborative solutions. Having learned more about these issues—and having met others with similar interests—participants leave armed to answer the call-to-action and get involved.

The Engage series enables and encourages that discussion, and makes it accessible for everyone. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn, chat and enjoy a great cup of coffee.
