Apples and medical discussions

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, October 2, 2002

A small crowd gathered at the library for lunch today, but it wasn’t the typical Lunch at the Library crowd. Instead, it was the start of a new, month-long program called &uot;Apple-A-Day.&uot;

Apple-A-Day brings in medical personnel from Vaughan Regional Medical Center and allows them to share their knowledge with the community. The program is free, all you have to do is bring a sandwich. The library provides chips, drinks and an apple.

The event is very informal, with the speakers discussing subjects briefly giving the audience plenty of chances to participate.

Tuesday, Jackie Moultrie, the director of cardiovascular services at Vaughan, along with Katherine Brownelle Cannon, a registered dietician at Vaughan, shared their thoughts on heart disease.

Cannon talked about the changes in diet needed to prevent disease.

The program begins at noon with lunch followed by the speakers at 12:30. The next Apple-A-Day will be Oct. 8 about &uot;Urology in the 21st century.&uot; There will be a program each Tuesday in October.
