Next Tuesday, May 12th, I’ll be giving another free public lecture as part of the Burnaby Division of Family Practice’s public health education series.
We started this program because most of the information that people get from television and the internet is incomplete, incorrect or biased. We wanted to fill in the gap to empower everyone in our community with the information needed to live a healthy life and get the most out of our healthcare system. The Burnaby Division of Family Practice is a non-profit organization whose members are the family doctors who serve the Burnaby community.
The talk is at 7 pm at the Bob Prittie Metrotown Branch library. I’ll be talking about screening tests (the tests that are recommended at different ages for each gender) and the symptoms that may indicate illness. I’ll go over the questions that physicians normally would ask patients during a complete physical. Most people never hear these questions because only a minority qualify for a physical covered by the Medical Services Plan.
