EXPERT OVERSIGHT

The Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI) determines priorities and carries out work under the ongoing guidance of cross-disciplinary advisors. As members of the AFWI’s Advisory Council or Curriculum Committee (or both), these experts bring a wider, external perspective to the development of the AFWI’s strategies, learning resources and partnerships.

 

ADVISORY COUNCIL

  • Advises on the strategic direction of the AFWI and our projects.

  • Informs the AFWI on current and emerging issues, standards and practices in early childhood development, addiction and mental health.

  • Directs the AFWI to additional areas of work that could enhance our objectives.

  • Identifies synergies with organizations in Canada and internationally.

 

CURRICULUM COMMITTEE

  • Advises on and endorses the content in the Brain Story Certification Course, a free online learning resource.
