Volunteers and graduates of the first “Moving On from Stroke” program at La Verendrye General Hospital this year posed for a celebratory photo. Seated in the front row are volunteers Wilma Chapman, left, and Melvin Jourdain, while in the back row are volunteer LaVerna Brown, left, and graduates Blondie Ditmars, Betty and Bill Penney, and Marcus Gerber. The “Moving On from Stroke” program is one of two programs that works to assist recovering stroke patients with exercise and education. The program is overseen by a physiotherapist in Thunder Bay, and patients in Fort Frances receive assistance from the Stroke Prevention Clinic at the hospital.
