Nov 18th "Using Technology to access Medical Supports and Services in Mt Waddington"Health Forum in Sointula a huge success!

Many thanks to everyone who helped make our fall forum a big success! BC Ferries staff were wonderful, and really helped us to get people over to Sointula who might not have been able to participate otherwise. Our presenters provided us with good information, and were able to explain how technologies already available can help us in our homes and in clinics throughout Mt Waddington.
