Chicken Soup and the flu

A steaming bowl of chicken soup may make you feel better when you have a common cold, but it may not do the trick when you get influenza - often called “the flu”. We took a few minutes to sit down with Dr. Michael Routledge, Medical Officer of Health for Southern Health-Santé Sud, who shared some very good advice about the flu.

Boost for breast cancer treatment

A new breast probe, donated to the Boundary Trails Health Centre, will make surgeries less invasive, and prevent an extra trip to Winnipeg for southern Manitoba residents dealing with breast cancer. The Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation gave the $69,000 probe to fulfill a local request.
