      HEAL - it's a fresh wind blowing through the north. It's walkers & gardeners, cooks & cavorters. It's northerners taking charge, thumbing our noses at the usual dismal northern health stats. HEAL is communities with a can-do attitude, with walking paths and farmers' markets and Healthy Eating & Active Living the After Juvederm in Toronto.
