MD Financial Management will once again be a sponsor of the Alberta Medical Association Youth Run Club during the 2017-18 season.

The AMA Youth Run Club is making a real difference in Alberta communities – and there are stories about how this is happening in this issue of Alberta Doctors’ Digest. The work of the program is made possible by the combined support of Alberta’s physicians, our partner Ever Active Schools and generous sponsors. The AMA is fortunate to partner with like-minded organizations such as MD Financial Management and Alberta Blue Cross to deliver this important program to schools across the province.

Owned by the Canadian Medical Association, MD Financial Management’s mandate is to advise physicians to help them achieve financial well-being. Supported by more than 45 years of physician-focused experience, MD’s advisors and teams of experts provide physicians with comprehensive financial plans, advice and solutions specific to every life stage. Whether you are interested in incorporating your practice, funding your child’s education, or preparing for retirement, MD Financial Management can help. For further information, please visit mdm.ca/ourservices.

MD Financial Management is a strong advocate of supporting and giving back to the medical profession. This second-year YRC sponsorship with the AMA is a perfect example of their commitment to the physician community.

Two-year-old Lucas Anderson (foreground), son of Dr. Amelia Correia, enjoys a run around St. Michael’s School gymnasium at the Medicine Hat Community Fun Run, hosted by the AMA Youth Run Club on October 17, 2017. Strong, gusty winds forced the usually outdoor run indoor to the school gym, where Hayley Degaust – Provincial Projects Coordinator with Ever Active Schools – led approximately 30 children and parents in warm-up exercises and games prior to running laps. A Medicine Hat family physician and long-time proponent of the YRC, Dr. Correia worked with the coach, principal and school staff to introduce and set-up a YRC at St. Michael’s, where her daughter, Sophia Anderson, is a grade three student.

The Alberta Medical Association stands as an advocate for its physician members, providing leadership & support for their role in the provision of quality health care.
