The Porcupine Health Unit has launched a new way for parents to connect and share health tips.

The PHU is starting a new facebook page to connect nurses with local families.

Public Health Nurse Bobbi-Jo Duquette says that on the page nurses will post up-to-date information which will inform parents on how to make healthy choices.

Duquette says every parent has questions in need of answers, this will help get those answers to them sooner.

She says they hope the topics generate further discussion between parents on their page.
