Grocery store tour with nutritionist
This month there are a few free, health conferences scheduled that should be of interest to many.
This evening, the CareRing Voice Network is holding a tele-workshop entitled How Mental Illness affects Sexuality. People wanting to participate in this workshop can do so from the comfort of their own home, as long as they have a telephone, or they can join others with similar concerns at the Mental Health Estrie office and participate by speaker phone in a confidential setting. In both cases you must first register to participate by either calling the CareRing Voice Network at 1 866 396-2433, calling Mental Health Estrie at 819 565-3777, or by registering online at www.careringvoice.com. Dr. Gerald Viviott, from the Montreal General Hospital, will conduct this workshop about the effects of mental illness and its treatment on a person’s sexuality.
Next Tuesday, January 25th, at 7 pm, nutritionist Josee-Anne Bégin will conduct a tour of the Coaticook IGA, informing participants how to make better food choices and how to read and understand food labels. Anyone wanting to take part in this tour must first register by calling Diabete Estrie at 819 823-8558. The information session is open to all, however, space is limited.
Diabete Estrie is also holding a conference on January 26th, from 7 to 8:30 pm, in Sherbrooke at the Eva Senecal Library in room # 4. A nurse will talk to the audience about hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia.
