We really enjoyed having Dr. Shahana Alibhai come out to speak with our agents at our annual office meeting on Health and Wellness. She is very passionate about Health and Wellness and cares about what she does. This was very apparent not only in her speech but in all the preparation she did before our meeting. She pointed out an issue we did not realize existed, which has allowed us to identify and correct issues in some problem areas. We have started to implement items to help people get the tools and resources they need to help them change their mindset and which will allow them to grow and focus more on their daily tasks. Dr. Shahana Alibhai has been a great resource and has been a huge help in assisting us with locating the information, tools and resources required for our agents. She is amazing!

Thank you so much Dr. Shahana Alibhai for your thought provoking and insightful presentation to the Abbotsford Child and Youth Committee (CYC)!
