Neuro Partners at the National Assembly
On Thursday, October 26th, our Executive Director Nicole Charpentier was at the National Assembly representing the Neuro Partners, alongside 4 organizations, whose goal is to work together to improve the quality of life of those living with a progressive neurological disease.
On this busy yet fruitful day, she met up with several elected officials and government employees. She met with Claude Cousineau, official spokesperson for the Parti Québécois in regards to family issues and for a second year in a row, Francine Charbonneau, Minister responsible for Seniors and Anti-Bullying amongst others. These meetings allowed the Neuro Partners and Parkinson Québec to put forth themes they considered imperative such as homecare support, caregivers and access to medication.
Ms. Charpentier also spoke with Annie Lemieux, political attaché of Gaétan Barrette, Minister of Health and Social Services. Once again, the focus of this meeting was on homecare support.
Ms. Charpentier mentions being very happy with the day’s turnout at the National Assembly of Quebec, spent with her counterparts from Muscular Dystrophy Canada, Federation of Québec Alzheimer Societies, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada – Quebec Division. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Society of Quebec – Lou Gehrig’s disease, all of whom came together for the occasion under the name Neuro Partners.
