EDEN Website Preview Webinars for Service Providers
Wednesday January 30, 2013 at 1:00pm ET
The EDEN website (www.edencanada.ca) is a website where people in Canada living with episodic disabilities, including HIV, can connect with each other to find and generate answers to tough employment questions.
In early 2012, we officially launched the easier to use, improved EDEN website to give users more of what they asked for:
- A revamped “Issues” section that provides an overview of the following topics: Disclosure in the Workplace, Employment Counselling, Employment Rights, Extended Drug and Health Benefits, Income Security, Returning to Work, Stigma and Discrimination, Work/Life Balance, and Workplace Accommodation
- More options to “Contact Us,” whether it’s to submit a general inquiry, ask a specific question, or share your employment story with others
- A new internal email system that can be used to contact other members. To use this feature, select ‘Enable Internal Messaging’ from the registration page or from ‘Update My Profile’
- A new FAQs section to help you find fast answers to your frequently asked questions
- Improved functionality in our Blogs and Connect section — now you’ll be able to comment on blog postings, connect more easily with other EDEN users using our enhanced online forums, and access audio and video clips from forum users
- More information on who we are — biographies of our bloggers and the names of our contributors will give you a better sense of the people behind EDEN
- A streamlined design to allow you to navigate more quickly to the information, resources and tools you need
If you are a service provider in Canada who assists people living with episodic disabilities with employment challenges, register now to participate in a free 30-minute webinar to learn more about how EDEN can help your clients.
The webinar was held in English on Wednesday January 30, 2013 at 1:00pm.

The research focuses on the challenges and issues that confront PHAs 50+ years old in different spheres of their personal and social lives, challenges related to intimacy, interpersonal relationships, social participation and their economic situation. The presentation will allow webinar participants to explore lived experiences and the challenges that arise at the intersection of living with HIV and growing older.
