Book Launch

Please come to our book launch on March 8, 2017 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. at University of University of Guelph-Humber, Room 225 (directions below).

Meet the authors Mohammed Baobaid, Executive Director of the Muslim Resource Centre for Social Support and Integration in London, ON, and Lynda Ashbourne, Associate Professor, Family Relations & Applied Nutrition (CFT), University of Guelph.

Come for conversation about this innovative model for bringing together formal and informal services and supports for families who are at some risk of harm or violence and who live within a collectivist community. Consider how these ideas might inform your own work as practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please forward this invitation to others who might be interested in attending.
