Name of creator
The Edmonton Women’s Health Collective began on June 24, 1984 when the Vancouver Women's Health Collective contacted the Alberta Status of Women Action Committee and arranged an information night. Alison Logan wrote a general letter on June 25, 1984 reporting on the first meeting of the Edmonton Women's Health Centre. The organization now known as Edmonton Women's Health Collective (EWHC) had its inaugural meeting August 15, 1984. The EWHC had eight core members who aimed to empower women regarding their own health and improve women’s health care in Edmonton. In order to meet their objectives the EWHC created educational women’s health workshops, developed an information sharing network, provided referral services, and published and disseminated women’s health related documents. As of 2022, the EWHC was no longer in operation
