National Non-smoking Week, January 21-27

National Non-Smoking Week is an opportunity to consider the dangers of tobacco use, and support those who want to quit, and those affected by second-hand smoke. Despite a decline in the overall smoking rate in Canada tobacco use remains a leading cause of preventable disease and death.

Access to the trusted advice of a dietitian just got easier! The Government of Canada, First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (Saskatchewan) and Dietitians of Canada are excited to launch Eat Well Saskatchewan – a dietitian call centre pilot project in Saskatchewan. This service will provide free, easy access to the trusted advice of a dietitian via telephone or email to improve healthy eating knowledge and behaviours.

 

Eat Well Saskatchewan will be piloted for a 3-month period beginning January 8, 2018 and ending March 29, 2018. The toll-free line is 1-833-782-7800 and will be open Monday to Friday 10 am – 4 pm (except statutory holidays). Outside of these hours, callers may leave a voice mail message and a dietitian will return their call. Emails can be sent anytime of the day/week to info@eatwellsask.ca.

Saskatchewan Health Authority

Five Hills Health Region is part of the provincial Saskatchewan Health Authority and planning to develop a comprehensive and intuitive website for the Authority is underway.

 

While this will take some time to accomplish, former health region websites like this continue to provide up-to-date service and location information for those in which they serve.

 

Visit our Transformation Update page for more information on the transition to single Authority.
