If your cause is the promotion of health and wellness…

‘Tis the season to apply for awards. All the hard work that you have been doing in your community is about to be recognized.

The BC Medical Association is now accepting nominations for the Excellence in Health Promotion Awards.
According to the BCMA,

“These awards recognize and honour an individual, a BC based not-for-profit organization, and a BC based company that work towards improving the health and safety of British Columbians. Nominees must have demonstrated a concern for health and safety through specific actions or initiatives that show ingenuity and creativity, with the goal of positive, long-term improvement. “

If you are like Madiha, featured on our red poster, and your cause is promoting health and wellness or if you know someone who volunteers or works passionately in this field, nomination forms and more detailed nomination criteria can be found at www.bcma.org. Note that all nominations must be received by Monday, May 11, 2009.

For more information on living a healthy life, tune into Health Matters on CJSF every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 4:00pm. It is written, hosted, and produced by Madiha Mahmood.
