The Ashcroft & Area Community Resource Society (CRS), with the support of a grant from the Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way, brought in Doctor Karin Kilpatrick to conduct four evening seminars on health and wellness.
Dr. Kilpatrick is a passionate advocate for self-managed health and wellness, and shared some powerful messages in the seminars which were held at the Ashcroft Community Hall on Feb. 23 and 24, with the last two sessions being held on March 15 and 16. In addition to Dr. Kilpatrick, her partner, Richard Walker, a food forester, provided information on nutritional foods we could grow in the area.
These sessions were put on at no cost to anyone wishing to attend and 70 people registered for the seminars. Nutritional snacks were provided and everyone left with a wealth of information on what we can do as individuals to stay healthy and determine our own wellness.
The Ashcroft and Area CRS is a non-profit charitable organization that serves Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Clinton, Spences Bridge, Walhachin and the surrounding area.
Without the support from the Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way it would not have been possible to offer these seminars at no cost.
