At 10 a.m. this Saturday, we invite everyone on Bowen to come together online for an island perspective on how to manage the physical, emotional, and financial risks posed by COVID-19.

A multi-disciplinary panel of Bowen professionals in healthcare and other fields have volunteered for the first Bowen Island COVID-19 Town Hall – a virtual Q&A forum presented by the Bowen Island Health Centre Foundation.

The panel will answer questions and share the latest information on the pandemic; provide advice on how to stay well - physically and mentally – while in isolation; and give information on the social and financial supports out there and how to access them. 

The panel includes Dr. Susanne Schloegl, who will share her perspective as Bowen’s primary care physician; Dr. Lloyd Purdy, a physician who works out of the REACH Community Health Centre in Vancouver; Dr. Gayle Goldstein, a registered psychologist with extensive experience counselling in critical situations; Sandy Logan, a registered physiotherapist with a longstanding practice on Bowen; Rod Marsh, chair of the Bowen Island Community Economic Development Committee, and well-versed in current financial aid programs; and Colleen O’Neil, program director of Bowen’s Caring Circle, dedicated to providing information about access to health and social services.

The Bowen Island COVID-19 Town Hall will take place at 10 a.m. this Saturday, April 4. To join the forum, go to zoom.us/join and enter Meeting ID 635 941-026 (if you don’t already have Zoom on your computer or mobile device, follow the prompts to download the program or app). You can also join by telephone at 778-907-2071 (Meeting ID 635 941 026).

You can email your questions in advance to townhall@bowenhealthcentre.com or ask them on the Town Hall. You can also request a direct link to the Town Hall via email at the same address.

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday.
