Follow-up on Bill 10

Dear Colleagues,

Following up on the last FMRQ Express, I would like to tell you about the latest developments concerning Bill 10. As I told you, the FMRQ was invited to submit its brief to the Parliamentary Committee this past October 22. We took the opportunity to express certain criticisms of Bill 10 and, we hope, to contribute to improving the health system for us—the upcoming generation of physicians—and for those who are central to our work—patients.

Wellness capsule of the month - Reducing your environmental stress

There are six billion of us on this earth, trying to find happiness, serenity and peace. It is a proven fact that greenery is gentle on the eyes, and the soft sounds and smells of nature relax the brain and help us relax. Our health does indeed improve when we are in contact with a natural environment, and the symptoms of depression—the consequence of being overloaded by stress—decline.
