Radio NAHO is about health. Your health.

Radio NAHO is a new initiative for the National Aboriginal Health Organization, which features radio episodes focusing on health issues from a holistic perspective with an emphasis on prevention. Radio NAHO aims to influence health behaviour in a positive way through education and stories from experts, advocates and role models.Radio NAHO will have something for everyone but is designed to particularly appeal to youth and young adults. We’ll look at the pressing health issues that concern First Nations communities. We plan to take a holistic approach and gain a better understanding of health issues from a First Nations perspective.
