“We want patients and families to be partners in their care,” explains Cholly Boland, CEO. “These education sessions are one way that we connect with our local communities and share important preventative health care information.”

The Seaway Valley Community Health Centre and WDMH are presenting a six-week program for people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The goal is to help patients and family members better manage this condition. The sessions take place each Monday from March 30 to May 4 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at WDMH.
