THE NEXT STEPS HEART FAIR

A variety of health care professionals participate in the heart fair and may include Registered Nurses, pharmacist, clinical dietitian, psychologist, a case manager from the cardiac rehabilitation program and a representative from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.
