We'd love you to come eat, chat and celebrate at the GenR8 Change FREE healthy breakfast. Share stories and learn about actions our community have led to make the healthy choice the easy choice, connect and network with others and enjoy a showcase of healthy catering thanks to Cafe' Gray! Whether you've previously been part of GenR8 Change or not, everyone's welcome! Bring a friend along! For catering purposes, RSVP is essential - to confirm your spot, please message the GenR8 Change page, email ebony.jenkins@wdhs.net, or phone 5551 8475.  

There are plenty of ways YOU can get involved in making change and showing support for healthier choices!   In addition to showing your support through joining the GenR8 Change community (join in 1 minute now!) , there are always ways to go that step further and become a part of the changes you want to see across the Southern Grampians.    Recently, some of the GenR8 Change community gathered informally to discuss some of the fantastic healthy changes that have happened in our community, and share ideas for further action. There were a number of new actions proposed at the session, and now we put the call out to you to jump on board!! Reach out to the key contacts assigned to each of the actions below, or alternative contact Ebony at ebony.jenkins@wdhs.net or 5551 8475.                              Has your club, school or organisation achieved anything similar and able to provide some guidance or advice? Or have you previously thought about pursuing one of these changes (or similar) to make the healthier choice the easier one? Get involved in these action groups to make it a whole lot easier! Of course these are not the only actions happening in our community, there is upwards of 150 similar changes occuring! To find out more or let us know about a change you've noted please get in contact with Ebony at ebony.jenkins@wdhs.net or 5551 8475 - we'd love to share your story! 

One key evaluation component of GenR8 Change is social network analysis (SNA). SNA reveals how change spreads within and beyond communities. SNA of our local GenR8 Change community will help us determine if the right mix of people are involved and connected to achieve our overall goal of sustained healthy systems change.   GLOBE @ Deakin University are currently seeking some information from key GenR8 Change community members that will feed into the analysis and build our local knowledge.   Whether you have been contacted previously to complete a SNA survey, OR the whole concept of Social Network Analysis in general interests you, you're invited to come along to an informal lunchtime session with Jaimie McGlashan from GLOBE as she shares with us; what SNA is used for, how it can benefit us locally and what future developments could look like. Anyone interested and keen to learn more is welcome! Be sure to RSVP if you do plan to attend for catering purposes.
