On This Edition of The Zoomer Week in Review:
At the start of world war 1, nearly 85-hundred people were displaced from their homes and put in internment camps across Canada. Now, 100 years later, those people are being honoured with a series of plaques across the country. We’ll learn more from Canadian historian Marsha Skrypuch, who has a very personal connection to this dark chapter of our history.
Plus, this week premiers from across Canada met in Charlottetown to discuss the idea of a National Seniors Strategy. CARP – A New Vision of aging is calling on the provinces to increase the role of pharmacists in our health-care system to help prevent a growing amount of hospital visits due to adverse drug reactions. CARP’s VP Susan Eng will tell us more.
