Ontario Public Library Week - Staying Healthy

Advocating for Yourself with Your Doctor

Talking to your doctor to make sure that you get the care you need can be  difficult when so many health care professionals are rushed, and can't always take time to listen.  Learn the essential skills to make the most of your doctor's appointment with Lorraine Hulley of Niagara Health Partners, the region's first and only professional health advocates.
