BETTER Women Program

BETTER Women Program

The BETTER Women program is a collaborative initiative between Women's College Hospital, the Canadian Cancer Society, and Summerville Family Health Team. The program provides South Asian Women between the ages of 40-65 with an evidence-based, peer coaching intervention to enable healthy behaviour changes to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. The lifestyle behaviours that will be addressed are physical activity, diet, smoking, and alcohol use. Patients will also be brought up-to-date on cancer and cardiac screening. 

Eligible patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Age 40-65

  • Self-identify as South Asian

  • Can communicate and read in English

  • Have been a patient of a Summerville Physician for ≥3 years

  • Have a valid email address

If you are interested in joining or learning more about this program, please
speak to your Physician or Nurse Practitioner.
