A Special Thank You to our Partners

Thanks to the generosity of our partners the Heart and Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick has been able to provide the tools and resources necessary to create a school culture that supports and promotes the healthy choice as the easiest and most popular choice available. Students across New Brunswick have the opportunity to benefit from healthy lifestyle choices and behaviours thanks to the following organizations:

Some 50,000 employees create value through innovation daily for the three business areas human pharmaceuticals, animal health and biopharmaceuticals.

Public Health, Horizon Health Network, provides services to individuals and communities to improve overall health. Public Health’s programs and services focus on health promotion, prevention and protection from disease and injuries.
