Chlamydia is the highest reported sexually transmitted infection in Labrador.

SHIELD was proud to host Labrador Unplugged winner Ethan Angnatok from Nain for three days to claim his prize! This included a recording session with Jamie Felsberg & Matthew Barrett at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre. Ethan also worked with the team from NunatuKavut Youth Community Engagement Project to get loads of footage that will be use for a music video of his song! We want to congratulate & thank Ethan for all his hard work. He has such a great attitude & passion for music! We also want to thank our funders, project partners & everyone who supported SHIELD’s Labrador Unplugged.

#HepCandMe Campaign.

As numbers rise in the Labrador Grenfell Health region, we want us to talk more openly about hepatitis C. What is it. How to get it. Importance of getting tested if you are at risk. How to treat and cure it. Let’s all do our part to reduce hepatitis C in our communities. For more information, please talk to your local health care provider (they will keep your info private).
