LACE Yukon News article Apr2017

Letter from Dr. Gertrude Saxinger to FNNND:

Dear all,
it is a pleasure so send over the article that was released on 14th of April in Yukon News featuring the Mobile Workers Guide that NND and our ReSDA/LACE project jointly publish.
The guide book will be released in June. Now it is in the design process.
Would be maybe also an opportunity to feature this article on the NND website, if you like. In doing so the citizens would know what Susa and I are doing in the community when we are there. Thanks.

Hope you all are doing very well and you enjoy spring time! (We in Vienna had already 25C plus but now it started to snow again. Crazy climate change).

All the best, Gerti and Susa
