It’s Always BRRRIGHT Season!

Winter is clearly on its way, given recent brisk temperatures. But that doesn’t mean BRIGHT is out of season.

A lot of BRIGHT prep work takes place during the winter months – particularly in the COVID-19 era when hot-weather destinations may not be appealing to many of us.

This month, take a look at the importance of our community partners and the effort that goes into bringing them on board.

As well, get a sense of how your BRIGHT executive committee is approaching BRIGHT 2022, our 15th anniversary event.

We’ve got a new feature for you, from the desk of Dr. Ashirbani Saha, the recently appointed BRIGHT Run Breast Cancer Learning Health System Chair, a permanent position financed by the BRIGHT Run in partnership with McMaster University.

In the coming months, Dr. Saha will be sharing her experiences, both as the new holder of the position and as a new resident of Hamilton. 

We know COVID isn’t over yet, but please don’t delay if you should have had a mammogram in the past year or two. Doctors at Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS), which includes the Juravinski Cancer Centre, are worried that some cancers may be going undetected because of pandemic reluctance. Get on top of it, folks!

And it may be chilly, but that’s no excuse to turn into a couch potato. Take a look at the latest Step Challenge from BRIGHT partner Kintec.

Stay warm, BRIGHT family, the coldest is yet to come!
