BYE-BYE CHEP

Chep?
CHEP stands for the Community Health Education Program. It was a brainchild of the Quebec-wide Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) based in Quebec City.

CHSSN is the organization that, since 2006, has offered video-conferences in English by experts on various health issues. Through video-conferencing technology, people in remote English-speaking communities were able to hear presentations and answers to their questions all the way from the host site, usually in Montreal. Often, the audience would include eight or 10 sites across Quebec - the Gaspé, Lachute, Thetford Mines, the North Shore, the Magdalen Islands, and even our very own Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre in Bury.

Townshippers' Association collaborated in bringing the sessions to Bury. They included topics such as Seniors' Eye Health, Body and Balance, Lung Health, Life Loses, AHCHOO - Seasonal Allergies, and Sleep Disorders.

And now the program is ending. The last information session is this Wednesday, December 5, on Memory Loss - not Alzheimer's.

Why is it ending? I spoke with Debbie Bishop from Townshippers'. She explained that the primary funding agency, Health Canada, was re-assessing its priorities in relation to programs funded through McGill University, such as CHEP.

Paradoxically, she said, the cut comes at a time when local interest seemed to be on the rise.

Then I spoke with Jennifer Johnson, executive director of CHSSN. She sounded much more optimistic. "I'm hoping it's not the end!" she said. "I see it as a transition period between two funding programs. The five-year ‘Road Map' ends in 2013. This is an unfortunate transition period of a few months. My most optimistic scenario is that it will be back in September."
In the meantime, DVDs of past sessions are available, should groups wish to view them.

All this only goes to support the observation that whatever is born will also die, whatever comes will also go. And so CHEP too has passed. And will probably come again!

HEALTH VIDEOCONFERENCES
Jog Your Brain (Memory Loss, not Alzheimer's). That's the topic for Wednesday, December 5, at 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Eaton Valley CLC, 523 Stokes Street, Bury. For more details or to register, please call Rosemary Lowe at 819-872-3771.

This is the last session in the CHSSN's Community Health Education Program (CHEP), hosted by Townshippers' Association. Financial support came from Health Canada through the McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project.

CONCERT IN BURY
The Pope Memorial School is presenting a Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 20, at 10:30 a.m. and again at 6:30 p.m. (This allows the Pre-Kindergarten children to go home at noon and rest, so they can participate in the evening performance.)

Everyone is welcome. Admission is free of charge. We encourage grandparents and friends to attend the morning performance, as we have limited space in the gym in the evening. Parents are required to bring their children to school by 6 p.m. for the evening performance. Pope Memorial School is located at 523 Stokes St, Bury.

PARTY IN BULWER
It's a Christmas Party FOR ALL AGES, at the Bulwer Community Center on Jordan Hill Rd, Saturday, Dec. 15 starting at 7:30 p.m. There'll be musical entertainment by Todd Aiken & the Drew family as we decorate the Christmas Tree, then Santa will arrive about 8:30, to greet the children 10 years and under. It's a potluck lunch and a donation at the door is appreciated. For more information leave a message at 819-875-3452.
