NO! Not more about the Coronavirus….

I have no doubt that you are just about ready to never hear the words Coronavirus or COVID-19 again, I know I am! Unfortunately these are difficult and unprecedented times and ignoring the facts will not help anyone. Of course there is so much information and it changes so rapidly, that it can be difficult […]

Enjoying winter?

In 2008, Ontario chose to implement Family Day to be observed on the third Monday in February. Whilst some skeptics considered its implementation a political tactic used to win votes, many saw it as an opportunity to break up a difficult time of the year in our Province. Regardless of whether you like winter or […]

Let’s Talk…

        This year, Bell’s Let’s Talk Day will be on January 29th. For those of you not familiar with it, for that day, Bell will donate 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of their Facebook frame or Snapchat filter. So what better opportunity to do […]

Happy New Year….

The last time I wrote about New Year’s resolutions was in 2017, but as we enter a new decade, it seemed a timely subject to revisit. Making promises as you enter the New Year goes back to the Babylonians over 4000 years ago and is said to have been started by Julius Caesar in honour […]

Sing like no one is listening….

If you are one of the millions of Canadians who enjoy singing in the shower, keep it up! While you may have heard of some of the benefits associated with singing such as its mental health impacts which have been linked to reducing depression and lowering stress levels, other benefits might surprise you. One little […]

Dirt-free gardening….

It would not be spring if I did not write at least once about gardening, but what about those of you who don’t have a green thumb or simply are unable to get out and get dirty? Don’t despair, gardening is still for you. Whether you lack the interest, aptitude or option to actually garden, […]

Finding hidden treasure….

As spring continues to evade us, you may be trying to find reasons to venture outside for some fun and activity. Well the search is over, or just beginning if you try geocaching! If you have ever driven through Highlands East in Haliburton around the area of Wilberforce, you may have seen the signs advertising […]

Changes at Kawartha North FHT

Unfortunately Dr. Mastouri and Dr. Druzin have chosen to leave the Kawartha North Family Health Team to be able to be closer to their family and friends.  While they will be missed, we wish them well and thank them for the service each of them has provided to our communities. Of course, we know and […]
