Don’t put your health on hold

No matter what’s going on in the world, your regular health concerns don’t stop. Neither does your doctor. Right now, doctors across Manitoba are still available to help with your essential health concerns as we adapt to COVID-19. That help extends to everything from prescriptions and ongoing chronic conditions, to injuries and other illnesses. Your doctor can help you decide if you should seek care now, or wait. Call your doctor first to get advice. They’re ready to help.

Online learning and connectivity is now more important (and convenient!) than ever before. We are always looking to share these wonderful resources with you. Check back regularly for updated registration details and links.
