Brockville Cardiovascular Program Open House
On Wednesday October 5th, the first Open House was held in the Brockville General Hospital’s (BGH) Cardiovascular Unit. This event was held in conjunction with Shoppers Drug Marts “Growing Women’s Health Campaign” (Brockville & Prescott locations), with the aim of raising awareness of issues related to women’s heart health. 100% of the local dollars raised during this campaign will go to support the BCP which receives no government funding. The Open House event was open to the public and during the free two hour session the community could gather information from professionals in the areas of nutrition, stress, and exercise.
