Tuesday night we had our monthly meeting at the Rothesay Ave Super Store. Our Guest Speaker was Vanessa Yurchesyn, a Dietitian who works for Loblaw.  She went over lots of very interesting facts about nutrition and what's healthy and what isn't. We were taken on a tour around the store and shown healthier options.
At the end of the tour Vanessa invited us back to do a cooking class, which we will be considering for a meeting in 2017.
She also told us that if anyone is interested in returning for a more one on one nutritional consultation and tour of the store, that it is free and anyone is welcome. Vanessa can be contacted via email or phone. Her information is below for anyone that is interested.

Another topic discussed at the meeting was "Smiles for Canada"
Smiles 4 Canada is a program run by the Canadian Foundation for the Advancement of Orthodontics (CFAO) in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Orthodontists (CAO). The program facilitates the orthodontic treatment of deserving young Canadians who would otherwise not be able to afford treatment. Applicants to the program must be under 14 years old. Patients who are accepted for treatment through the program will be treated by a local participating orthodontist. Patients’ families are only required to pay a small administrative fee, generally less than 10% of a complete course of treatment.
** This program was brought to our attention from an orthodontic assistant of this program for underprivileged children. Please pass this along to your Dentist.
Hope to see you all at the next meeting which will be February 3rd, our guest speaker will be Dr. Fitzpatrick and he will be talking to us about Cleft Palate. We are hoping to have the meeting at the Rothesay Ave Super store again. We will send out an email when the location is confirmed.
