Another New PCWH Team Member

It’s my great pleasure to welcome Shayne Vars to our clinical program as the new PCWH Social Worker. Along with supporting families and working with our team, Shayne will also support families within the Medical Genetics Program at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

The lack of a consistent social worker has been a long-standing limitation in our weight management services for families and, we believe, has limited our team from working most effectively with families. This is especially relevant given the multiple stresses many of our families experience in their everyday lives as they try to make and maintain healthy choices.

Many, many thanks to Carol McCarthy (Manager, Therapeutic Services) and Lynett Kane (Manager, Social Work and Child & Adolescent Protection Centre) at the Stollery Children’s Hospital for their efforts to address this gap for us.
