I am currently taking a course regarding elder care and the importance of understanding the needs of older clients and the responsibilities of their families... Obesity is the leading cause of related illnesses and death in North America!! This an a preventable illness.

Those who know me might recall my involvement in community work from time to time with different organizations, such as: United Way of York Region, The Healing Cycle and Foresters, as well as various fund-raising ventures for Scouts Canada, Breast Cancer Society and local schools.
