Do you believe in helping ourselves and our neighbours to achieve and maintain optimal well-being? Do you believe that this should be an important focus of the Victoria Health Co-op? Do you believe that we should use the medical system only for the treatment of the symptoms and injuries rather than expecting medical practitioners to solve all problems that could be better addressed through health education, healthy lifestyle programs and community contacts? Do you believe that good community health education, a focus on well-being would free up MDs and other medical practitioners to focus on those who really need them, thereby reducing wait-times, suffering and costs?
If you are interested in any of these approaches that focus on individual and community well-being please consider offering financial support to the Victoria Health Co-op either directly or in conjunction with the Creating Community Wellness Society. Or consider offering support as a volunteer.
