Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Six more family doctors join SCHR

Sun Country Health Region is very pleased to announce that six more doctors have chosen to practice in five communities within this Region this spring. This is in addition to the 13 doctors who started in the Region last year.

“We are excited to bring these new medical practitioners into our Region and our communities,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, Sun Country Health Region. “With all of the recruitment work done in the Region with our partners in the Ministry of Health, saskdocs, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan, and the local communities, we have now reached our planned complement of doctors.”

The doctors and the communities in which they will practice are as follows:  

  • Dr. Hamidreza Shahbazibimesl will join the Arcola Family Health Clinic in the week of June 9.
  • Dr. Jamshid Khak joined the Kipling Primary Health Clinic during the week of May 26.
  • Dr. Vijay Prabhu joined the Redvers Medical Clinic during the week of May 26.
  • Dr. Hany Abdelsaied will join the Radville Medical Clinic in the week of June 2.  
  • Dr. Joy Igbinovia & Dr. Efosa Igbinovia, joined Weyburn Health Centre during the week of May 26.

“The goal for SCHR and our neighbours going forward will be to embrace these doctors and keep them with us for a long time to come. Retention of the doctors is as important as the original recruitment process,” says Mrs. Cugnet.

“Surveys conducted by saskdocs during 2012 indicated that family, location/lack of amenities and work-life balance are the primary reasons that doctors leave a practice,” she says. “We need to make sure the families of our doctors as well as the doctors are comfortable and welcomed.”
