Our Health Matters
Jayne Pilot, member of the Brampton Rotary Club spoke September 12th, 2016 on “Our Health Matters”. Her background includes past District Manager for Canada with Browning Ferris Industries in the early 90’s, setting up medical waste disposal, starting a number of international firsts tied with disposal of needles and drugs through the pharmacies, international waste disposal and medical waste disposal.
Last year she wrote a white paper reviewing the status of medical waste disposal in Ontario and Canada. She shared the stats from the Green Hospital Scorecard report outlining that 59% of the waste from hospitals was going to landfills, 34% were diverted wastes (recycle, reuse and compost) and only 7% was treated as biomedical waste.
Biomedical waste is regulated to minimize spread of disease from medical settings from healthcare facilities, however more patients today are being treated in the homes, and what was classified as medical waste is now municipal garbage. We have aids patients, hepatitis patients, and kidney dialysis patients treated in the homes with medical waste disposal needs.
Meet Sasana Fujita
Louisa formally introduced Sasana Fujita, Brampton Rotary's newest exchange student from Japan.
Sasana was welcomed at the airport by Louisa, Norm Binden, Carole Berry and Steve Robinson. She spent the rest of her weekend at a Jays game with Norm and a fun stay at the lake with Steve and his family.
"I'm so happy to be here," said Sasana.
Louisa thanked Brampton Rotary for the opportunity to host exchange students. "It's a great thing that the club does and it's fortunate to have a great community of support."
Sasana is already speaking more English and is looking forward to starting high school. Louisa asked that club members please include her in any activities they may be planning with their families. There will be a welcome party for all Rotary Youth Exchange Students on September 17 at Mocon Nurseries.
Prior to the introduction, Dennis played the Japanese national anthem and the Japanese flag was placed at the front of the room, where it will remain for the duration of Sasana's stay.
Rotary & Zonta donate a van
Continuing a tradition that began 15 years ago, the Rotary Club of Brampton partnered with the Zonta Club of Brampton Caledon for the purchase of a Dodge Caravan for the Salvation Army's Family Life Resource Centre. Members of both service clubs gathered at the Resource Centre to present Executive Director Marilyn Field and Major Gordon Armstrong of the Salvation Army with the keys to the vehicle.
Monies donated from both groups were raised through OLG Bingo and we thank Delta Bingo for their continued support. The Family Life Resource Centre provides vital shelter, support and life skills coaching for women and children.
