Westmount Healthy City Project & MUHC Foundation Joint Venture Lecture Series

Join us for three free informative lectures at the Westmount Public Library.

Westmount is proud to be a part of the Healthy Cities global network since 1991. Through the years, the project volunteers contributed significantly to the resolution of various material, social and environmental problems at the heart of our community. This Spring the Healthy City Project is teaming up with the MUHC Foundation to present three lectures on healthcare.


HEALING BEYOND TRADITIONAL MEDICINE – Thursday, March 30, 2017 – 7pm

By Susan Doherty

Can using your mind help heal your body? Susan Doherty, a well-known Westmount resident, will tell us about her experience receiving a live-saving stem cell transplant for a rare disease at the MUHC in 2016.  She learned to own her illness, to have faith, and to stay 100% positive.


INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY & MEDICINE – Thursday, April 27, 2017 – 7pm

By Penny Chipman

Research comes in many shapes, forms, sizes, and in many disease types. Research has shown that participating in a clinical trial offers the patient the opportunity to be treated with novel and state-of-the-art therapies. With the new equipment available to the research community and patients, diagnoses and treatments are discovered and treated quicker.


PATIENT EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY – Tuesday, May 30, 2017 – 7pm

By Doctors David Fleiszer & Nancy Posel

Healthcare is different today: care delivery can be more challenging for both clinicians and patients, but there are also more opportunities for partnerships and for a shared mandate for health promotion, disease prevention, etc. The presentation will focus on the current role of patient education and its impact on patient and family engagement and perceptions.
