Mini Talks Are Back!!

One aspect of rehab that I found particularly helpful was the education provided by the weekly mini-talk. They were also a big part of my volunteer experience, keeping me current and learning new information when it became available. Necessity being the parent of invention, the Central East Regional Cardiovascular Rehab has had to create a way to provide the rehab program “on-line”. The Cardiac Rehab team has been working towards offering live events as part of their virtual/home program. I just did the Chair Yoga session and it was great! As Grads we are more than welcome to join the live sessions!

Refer A Friend

If you have neighbors, family or friends that you think may benefit from rehab, please refer them to this website. They can view “Is Rehab Right for You?” They can contact the program directly or use the referral form to ask their family doctor about it.

Covid-19 Alert – April 2 Meeting Postponed

We have decided after discussion with Doctor Wagner that we will postpone the April 2 meeting, probably until September.

While there is not a single case of Covid-19 infection in Peterborough as of March 12th, it is a prudent action to take. Healthcare workers like Doctor Wagner have been asked to avoid gatherings of 20+ people.

We will stay in touch regarding other potential cancellations of meetings (May and June).

February Meeting Reminder

The meeting on Wednesday February 12th is an important one. Our only topic is discussion around what kinds of benefits and activities you would like to get from the peer group in the next year or so.

See you at the Wellness Center at 1:30 PM on Wednesday February 12th.
