4 Korners' April News


Spring is in the air! This month's highlights include the Health Caravan, the arrival of the Health Passport and the 2016 edition of the Laurentian Services Directory.
AS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD, 4 Korners Family Resource Center has been touring the Laurentians with the Health Caravan. This highly successful tour heen providing English-speaking families with access to 3rd year health professionals from John Abbott College who have been offering a multitude of health and social services. So far, those attending were able to have their blood sugar and blood pressure tested, received electrocardiogram examinations, among other services. Information on nutrition and many other health related topics in English was also offered to the English-speaking communities. 

Feedback from a satisfied Health Caravan visitor
"It's very informative, I had found out that I had previously had a heart attack when they took the electrocardiogram test. Though I didn't even realize I had one it showed on the test! We also learned that when we are taking our blood pressure at home, not to lay down, we should always be sitting up. The Health Caravan is a very good idea for our community, they were all so very willing to take the time to talk and explain things. We didn't feel rushed at all. We also got to have our blood tested for glucose and cholesterol."
- Ellen W.
