The Chinese Heart and Stroke Survivors and Caregivers Summit held in June at Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Northeast/Markham provided inspiration and education.

The summit examined the importance of rehabilitation, understanding the process of recovery, new skills and knowledge to cope with changes after heart disease or stroke and the resources and services in our community.

The speakers panel included guest speaker Dr. Raymond Chan, Markham Regional Councillor Joe Li, Toronto Rehab Institute social worker Sukhan Lai and Carefirst Seniors registered kinesiologist Kenneth Lo.
