The main purpose of the meeting was to relay the latest information to its members, including outreach strategies. Also presented was some of the latest statistical information in regards to identifying prospective target groups, thus relaying competent information to that particular group. In addition to the health facts presented in the morning segment of the meeting was a presentation prepared by presentation specialist Eckert Middleton. This presentation edified NAC Island Committee members on the fundamentals of preparing an effective presentation. It included everything from what to include in a presentation all the way the down to fundamentals such as selecting appropriate font types and sizing.
