BeCause & Effect #31: Connie Newman

Health, Wellness & Recreation

Connie Newman knows seniors’ issues. As the Executive Director of the Manitoba Association of Seniors Centres, Connie has been devoting her life to advocating for the needs of seniors here in our province for nearly 15 years.

As a retired highschool teacher, Connie’s ability to bring people together and solve problems makes her perfect in this role. 

I sat down with Connie Newman, to discuss generational issues, mental and physical health in seniors, and the importance of staying connected to one another.
