Welcome to Maria Martin, our newest Health Promotions Intern!

Welcome Wagon + Announcement

From Guest Blogger Maria Martin

Hi everyone!

My name is Maria Martin and I am a new intern at Hello Cool World
headquarters. Similar to my predecessor, Linh Tra, I, too, am a
Nursing student at Vancouver Community College. I am in my fourth year
and currently doing my public health clinical rotation. I am doing a
project for HCW about health promotion as part of my clinical so stay
tuned and curious.

Hello Cool World team will be at the Community Health Associates
Meeting on March 12-14. We are invited to the conference to display
our work with First Nations on health promotions so come by our table
to chat, check out our portfolio, or be part of our live broadcast. We
will be at the helm of the social media component, tweeting and
blogging live. Follow us on Twitter (#CDC2013, #FNHealth) Facebook, or on our site.

We are also doing interviews so this is an opportunity to plug your
work or projects and meet the Hello Cool World team. Anyone attending
feel free to come by our table to learn more about whom we are, what
we do, and what Hello Cool World can do for you or your organizations.
Let’s connect and stay cool. MM

It's TODAY! Looking forward to being at our LACE Campaign table as part of the "EXPOsed" event at the Underwear Affair to cheer on our LACE OFF team of Michelle, Lizzy and Carmen. Here's Michelle sporting one of our LACE  team shirts! C'mon down and check out our table. (Rumour has it there may be doughnuts!)

Where: Seaforth Armoury, Burrard Street at West 1st Ave.
Exposed  3:30pm - 5:30pm
Race Starts: 6:30pm with the walk starting immediately after
EXPOsed Afterparty:  Starts as soon as the first runner crosses the finish line

 In the Hello Cool World spirit of 'multi-causing' a term coined last year by Lizzy & David, we're sharing our table with our fabulous Immunity Advocates we met creating the content for ImmunizeBC's new campaign - Pictured in our banner are Audra and her daughter Alexandria who are making an appearance today at our info table! You can also watch the video we made of their familiy's story on the site.

Hello Cool World is proud to have worked on both campaigns and to make the link between Mothers and Daughters. Moms need regular Paps to protect their health, but now there is a vaccine that will protect their daughters against HPV, the cause of cervical cancer.

Bella enjoying a post-shoot afternoon snackThe Hello Cool World team finished our last photo and video shoot this weekend for the I Have Immunity campaign. I didn't take any behind-the-scenes photos at the shoot, but here's Bella at our post-shoot outing to The Reef.

We had such a great weekend with all our participants- it was wonderful to work with more real families (some of whom were lovely enough to drive in from Chiliwack and Squamish) and talk to them about health and immunity.
