World Heart Day

Thursday, September 29 is World Heart ❤️ Day, a day to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and its risk factors.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally and is responsible for more than 17 million deaths annually.
The good news is that many of these deaths are preventable. By adopting a healthy lifestyle and managing risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, we can dramatically reduce our chances of developing cardiovascular disease.
Walking is one of the simplest ways you can help your #HeartHealth. Regular walking can help reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels.
Discover new walking trails in your area.
Let’s all commit to caring for our heart health on #WorldHeartDay. Talk to your family doctor to learn how you can best take care of your heart.

Annual Check Up

Did you know? A routine checkup is important to keep your health on the right track. If you are over the age of 50, doctors recommend going in for a checkup at least once a year, depending on your medical history.
Some benefits of a routine checkup include:
– early diagnosis and treatment of health conditions
– monitoring of existing conditions
– learning healthy habits
– developing a relationship with your doctor
Ask your doctor how often you should be coming in for a checkup.

#Fitness Friday

It’s easier to stay active in the summer but as the season starts to change it can be more difficult to keep moving.


Walking is one of the easiest ways to exercise outside and a great way to fit in movement throughout the day. This fall, plan activities that involve walking such as apple-picking, hunting for the perfect pumpkin or simply enjoying the beautiful autumn colors in your neighborhood.


If you need more tips or support in staying active, talk with your family doctor. They can support you with your fitness goals and connect you with fitness resources.

World Alzheimer’s Day

Typically, Alzheimer’s disease begins with lapses of memory, difficulty in finding the right words for everyday objects or mood swings.

As Alzheimer’s progresses, the person may:

  • Routinely forget recent events, names and faces and have difficulty in understanding what is being said
  • Become confused
  • Undergo personality changes
  • Experience mood swings

Talk with your doctor about symptoms you or your loved one might be experiencing.

Know Your Risk

Getting screened for cancer regularly is the best way to find it early, before you have any symptoms and when treatment is likely to work best.


Alberta currently has provincial screening programs for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer.


Albertans have access to a great resource, Screening For Life, at


There you’ll find a risk factor calculator you can use as a tool in your own health care to know your cancer risk.


Speak to your family doctor if you experience any changes or to discuss which screenings are right for you.
