The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) hosted its fourth annual Health Talks 101: Day of Medical Enlightenment on Saturday, Sept. 28.

About 200 guests came out for the event at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre.

The goal of the event is to share with the public new initiatives on relevant health topics.

Founder Dr. Peter Fry said it was an “absolute delight” to have health-care professionals share their knowledge and expertise on a variety of topics.

“Our goal is to provide excellent, educational and colourful talks that are easy to absorb, learn from, and communicate to others in our families,” he said.

The presentations included an opportunity to “ask the expert “or to chat with an expert during lunch or coffee break.

Some of the topics covered this year included cardiac care, the neurobiology of stress, advanced care planning, and diabetes.
