Hi Olivia,
I'm doing some planning for my time next Spring, and I came across this page that lists a number of AHS (Capital Health) participants.  They do community presentations and I might offer to coordinate with them.  What do you think?  Here's the contact sheet.  Do you know any of these folks?

Spoke to Shelly Williams

Hi Shelley,
Thanks for taking my call today.  Your center looks like it does a TON of good in the commmunity.  I would like to contribute with workshops to help people become more disease resistant at the personal and family level, as well as in their community interactions.  I've got my web address below so you can read about my project.
As I said on the phone, we might want to meet in January (I'm back after the 14th) to talk about how I we might work together. Just email me with a place and time and I'll meet you there.  I'll be in Edmonton until May.

Left phone message with Rob, whose number is on the main page.


I found Bandy Luedemann's email and phone on the web site (no listing of current officers) and sent her an email with the phone message and the invitation in it.  Sent to: 




Found the contact list site:  http://www.lewisestates.org/committee.htm  I forwarded the previous message to Robert Sharman,rsharman@shaw.ca, the President of the organization.  It occurrs to me that they might not have a hall for meetings, and that it might be useful for me to say that I could do the talk in someone's home, or in another central location, such as the club house for the golf course that this community is built around.



Message to Robert Sharman Robert Sharman,rsharman@shaw.ca


The week of October 21-25 (M-F) is open. So if you can pick a date you think would work best, I’ll put it on the schedule and we can go from there. I looked up the EMS Branch of the Community Services Department (which I noticed in your alternative email signature.) I would like to work with the city to get out my message of community preparedness. I’ve sent an email offering to present on flu pandemic preparedness to Robert Black of the Emergency Preparedness Department. They have a flu pandemic preparedness mission. Perhaps you could suggest additional ways in which I might reach people through the city departments. Would the Department of Community Services be interested in sponsoring a talk on pandemic preparedness? I have some excellent resources that I can share to encourage community involvement. Thank you very much. I look forward to working with you.  


Followed up on 10/8.  Messge to Sharman.

I really appreciate your taking time to chat with me about my work yesterday. As you recall, we discussed my offering a talk on public health issues (focusing on flu pandemics) to the McCauley Community League (and perhaps Alberta Avenue, Boyle Street and other communities in your area). I think my information about preparedness and my new Community Flu Preparedness Kit will be valuable to your community. Here is the website for my project: http://www.faculty.english.ttu.edu/barker/PandemicRisk/Default.htm I must say I’m quite impressed with your newsletter. I think it’s the best one I’ve seen so far (and I’ve looked at my share of them as I’ve contacted community leagues in Edmonton). I can easily provide a photo, a blurb, or a couple of columns about the subject and my project if it would help get the word out. As I outlined to you in our conversation, I’m asking leaders like you to help by getting the word out. I can schedule the room with the League and don’t mind paying the hall rental. A newsletter item, some posters (which I’ll put up) and an email list to which I can send my invitations is all I really require. You mentioned doing the talk in early November, which would be fine with me. I’m particularly interested in reaching at risk populations, inner-city groups, and other segments of society for whom public health issues are important and for whom communication might be a challenge. I hope we share these goals.

I was also thinking that you may wish to connect with  city of Edmonton person in charge of disaster planning for the city - his name is Dean McKellar and his email is dean.mckellar@edmonton.ca.  (from Janice Bell)

Email to Dean McKellar on 9/30


Dear Mr. McKellar, Your name was suggested to me as a person I might contact to interview as a public health information provider. I am a Visiting Scholar with the UA School of Public Health. I am investigating community communication readiness for flu pandemics. You can read about my study at this link: http://www.faculty.english.ttu.edu/barker/PandemicRisk/. I am attaching an invitation to an interview. As a professional involved in emergency and disaster planning, your views are an important element in the overall Edmonton community response. The invitation is general, and has been approved by the UA Health Research Ethics Board. I hope you will have time for a brief research conversation about the issue of community response to public health information. Please let me know if you are interested in being interviewed. I promise it will be interesting and useful, and it will not take up much of your time. Thank you!

Dear xxxxxxxxx Community League,


I am a Visiting Scholar with the University of Alberta School of Public Health, writing to offer a public talk on pandemic flu readiness for community league members in Edmonton. I would like to present the talk to the xxxxxxxxxxxxx Community League. From your website it looks like your League is quite active and a talk on community readiness for public health threats might be of interest to members.


Community preparedness is one of the most important elements in dealing successfully with flu pandemics and other public health threats.


The talk may help your members prepare for pandemic flu, listeriosus, or other threats from biological agents. The 30 to 60 minute talk is part of a research project to find ways for the public to communicate effectively with health care agencies, such as Alberta Health Services. Talks may be scheduled any evening during September and October at your facility. No equipment is required and the talk is totally free. You can find out more about the presentation at the following Internet link:




I am attaching an invitation and sample poster. I can do the talk as a stand alone presentation or do it as part of another event. Please call 780 884-1299 or email thomas.barker@ttu.edu if you are interested in scheduling a talk for xxxxxxxxxxxx Community League members. If you are not involved in program planning, could you please forward this message to the correct persons?


Thank you!
