Au revoir to Peggy Schultz

By Barb Willet

After 26 years with Health Nexus, it is with regret but warm wishes that we announce the retirement of Peggy Schultz, Health Promotion Consultant, effective September 30, 2014.

Peggy began her long time association with Health Nexus, then Ontario Prevention Clearinghouse, in 1987 as one of its original Advisory committee members, laying the foundation of our organization and establishing its mission and mandate.  A short time later, Peggy joined the staff as a Health Promotion Consultant.  Peggy’s depth of knowledge and commitment to the essence of health promotion – equity, inclusiveness, collective action – coupled with her systems thinking approach had a profound impact on the countless organizations and communities that she worked with over the years.  Her contributions to Health Nexus and the sector in general will be long lasting. She will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the staff and Board at Health Nexus, I wish Peggy all the best as she begins this new chapter in her life.
