Part of my job as the Producer at Crow’s Theatre is to get the word out about our productions. With a show like SEEDS where there is a timely and tangible issue being discussed my community outreach becomes targeted to groups that would be interested in the topic at hand.
In the past few weeks I have talked to a number of organizations who have helped us get the word out about the show, and from time to time I will take to this blog to feature them and the amazing work they do.
Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors
The Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) is the national association for qualified naturopathic doctors across Canada. The CAND promotes naturopathic medicine to the public, corporations, insurance companies and the federal government and facilitates communication within the naturopathic profession.
