Tenfold: A Podcast on Community Engagement is now live!

This week, we're very excited to launch Tenfold, a weekly podcast about community engagement and public health. Through the stories and experiences of Canadian public health professionals, Tenfold aims to engage listeners in difference and embrace discomfort.

Each week, a different public health professional joins our host Andrea to talk about their experiences with community engagement. Tenfold covers a range of topics from engaging Indigenous communities in a good way to the role of community engagement in knowledge exchange.

Andrea Bodkin is a health promoter who supports public health units in Ontario on a variety of topics such as planning, evaluation, partnerships and community engagement. Podcasting has been a dream of Andrea’s and she’s thrilled to be a part of the PHESC team bringing Tenfold to you.
