In May 30, 2016, Mackenzie Health recognized Celebrating Patients Day: Your Stories Inspire Us to acknowledge patients and their health experiences. The highlight of the day was an evening celebration featuring patients sharing their health stories, followed by a panel discussion with special guest host Dale Curd from CBC TV’s popular show, Hello Goodbye.
In the spring, Mackenzie Health encouraged patients to come forward to share their personal health stories. Six patients were selected to participate in this special event and tell their story in their own words. Stories were pre-taped to allow patients to sit down with Dale Curd, to share their feelings on being a patient and reflect on their experiences.
The resulting patient stories were shared at Mackenzie Health’s first Celebrating Patients Day and are now are available on our website and YouTube channels at:
