LGHPES provides lunch for physicians the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 12-1:30 in the Physicians Lounge. Lunches will start again on September 11, 2019. The lunch theme is always changing. Meet your colleagues. First come first served. We generally have around 80 physicians attend. We hope to see you there!
Coffee and Tea is available in the physicians lounge at all times. Cups are available but you can help the environment by using your own mug. There is a water dispenser with hot and cold water selection. Feel free to fill up your water bottles. We hope you’ve enjoyed the Timbits treats over the summer.
This program provides free psycho-social care, complementary to medical care, to individuals living with a life-threatening illness and their family on the North Shore and Bowen Island.
