MINDEMOYA—The fifth annual Manitoulin Central Family Health Team (MCFHT) golf tournament was again a huge success this year. The event was held at the Brookwood Brae Golf Course in Mindemoya this past Saturday.

“I would like to thank everyone for coming out today to participate,” said Lori Oswald, MCFHT executive director. “We’ve made some improvements in the format for the tournament this year, and hopefully everyone will come back again next year.”

Ms. Oswald explained the proceeds derived from the tournament will be going toward the MCFHT purchasing an “ambulatory blood pressure monitor” devicethat allows patients to have their blood pressures taken within the comfort of their own home.
