The Strathcona Community Health Network (SCHN) is a place where people with wide-ranging backgrounds, roles and perspectives can come together to take action on issues that impact health and well-being in their communities. Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of communities in the Strathcona region by focusing on root causes before people get sick.
