Cycle 16 and CICK Monster Clash

While advocating for cardiac care, put the ticker to the test with these two events.

Still on my way to Abbotsford, lots of traffic and road work.

The Cycle 16 Trail Society AGM will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 7 p.m., at Two Sisters Café in Smithers. On the agenda: Election of officers, financial report and president’s update. They will move to the Smithers Brewery after the AGM for refreshments.

Attended the Northern Health Cardiac Strategy workshop. It was well attended and questions from the public were welcomed. It was agreed that for those of us living in northern B.C., we tend to have more challenges to access cardiac services. Northern Health has a plan for improving these services and have set goals: improve heart health services by finding ways to bring care closer to home; improve quality and standards of heart health care; provide patient and family centered care, and improve patients’ and families’ experiences of care. One of the main requests is for a Healthy Heart Program in Smithers. Advocating for this program is important, really helpful for patients and families. Contribute online to heart health by sharing your thoughts, this will be confidential plus you will have access online to a final report: bit.ly/NHhearthealth.
