All members:

There has been a lot of questions surrounding concussions and plenty of members have asked if we had access or a resource to the latest care and procedures surrounding them. With the guidance of LifeMark, we have something that is a good starter for people to take in. They have several centers on the Island and across BC. Please see info below for webinar on Weds Feb 11/ @ 7 pm.
