The BC Care Providers is pleased to announce that our 1st Annual Minister of Health lunch event being held on October 9th is now sold out. The Hon. Terry Lake will be joining over 300 representatives from the continuing care sector and business community to provide his vision for taking care of BC’s seniors into the future.
“I’m very pleased that we had such an enthusiastic response from the continuing care sector for this important event. To sell out this quickly is a testament to the fact that our sector is very interested in the message the minister will deliver on behalf of the government,” says Daniel Fontaine, CEO of the BCCPA.
The concept for the annual event was initiated by the BCCPA but is being jointly organized by the Denominational Health Association (DHA) and the BC Seniors Living Association (BCSLA).
DHA executive director Susan House said she was pleased at how the three organizations were able to come together to put together the popular luncheon.
“This is the first time our three organizations have jointly collaborated on a single project,” says House. “It’s great to see that it was for such an important event.”
Marlene Williams, Executive Director at the BCSLA said she is looking forward to hearing what Lake has in store for the over 300 attendees. “We are very much looking forward to hearing what the Minister’s vision is for taking care of BC’s seniors in the years to come.”
Although the event is sold out, there is a good chance more tickets will open up closer to the date. Interested parties can continue to call or email firstname.lastname@example.org to put their names on a waiting list.
The event starts at 11:30 a.m. and is open to the media and the public. There will also be a brief question and answer period following the presentation. For more information visit www.bccare.ca/events. To view the media release in its entirety, please click here.
