“I'm very excited about being on the Board of Directors for Health Choices,” says Mr. Frank Palmer, the founder and chairman of DDB Canada. “I've watched the development of Health Choices for four years. The quality of content combined with the directory is one of a kind in Canada and quite possibly North America.”

The website connects Canadians with health and lifestyle providers based on their geographic location, and also features updated information from experts and Health Choices editors in the Community Health Talks. With resources on topics such as diabetes, nutrition, fitness, physiotherapy, prenatal and postnatal health, sexual health and sports injuries in its HealthChoices.ca is the largest provider of video content of its kind in North America.

“I'm impressed with the accuracy, quality and strength of the video, and more importantly the ability to update content with the Community Health Talk,” says Dr. Mark Schonfeld, the Chief Executive Office of the BC Medical Association and a member of the visiting staff to Vancouver General Hospital. “It really is an innovative way of constantly changing the medical environment.”
