Fourth annual event hosted in Abbotsford by Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

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

The free event opens at 8 a.m. at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre, 36035 North Parallel Rd.

Participants will be provided lunch and coffee/tea service throughout the day.

Health Talks started in 2016, with the objective to share with the public new initiatives on relevant health topics.

“Our goal is to provide excellent, educational and colourful talks that are easy to absorb, learn from, and communicate to others in your families,” said founder Dr. Peter Fry.

Local physicians and other health-care professionals will cover topics that include cardiac care, foot care, emergency services, sleep apnea, advanced care planning, and more.

“The presentations include an opportunity to ‘ask the expert’ or to chat with an expert during lunch or coffee break,” said Liz Harris, FVHCF executive director. “So bring your concerns and questions and we will do our best to impress you.”
