Welcome to the Foundation for Wellness Professionals of Ottawa
The Foundation for Wellness Professionals™ is a volunteer, non-profit association of healthcare professionals who donate time locally in their communities.
Our members donate time in the community to raise awareness and educate the public on many health issues and new health research. It was originally founded in 1985 by Dr. David Singer, in Clearwater, Florida. This volunteer, not-for-profit association operates through independently operated chapters across the United States and Canada.
In Ottawa, we have worked with many local groups including non-profits, charities, corporations, government departments, teams and local community groups since 2009. Read more about us
About Our Services:
Our volunteer health professionals donate a certain amount of time each month. In Ottawa, we can provide:
Health-related gifts donated to charity or community events
Partnerships with local heath-focused businesses
All our events and workshops emphasize preventative care as a key to good health, better productivity, lower healthcare costs and better quality of life.
Workshops and seminars vary in length from 15 minutes to one hour. Audience participation is strongly recommended when possible and those who attend always leave with practical information they can put to use to improve their lives.
Members are doctors and healthcare professionals who donate their time in Ottawa. Current and past members include nurses, medical doctors, dentists, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, reflexologists, nutritionists, pharmacists, physiotherapist, personal fitness trainers, yoga and meditation teachers, and more.
Our members devote their time as motivational and keynote speakers, contribute their time to provide wellness days, donate their services or time for local charity and community events, and deliver educational workshops on health-related topics in their local communities. Our professional members are in great demand to speak at corporations, women’s associations, bookstores, health food stores, fitness centres, and more.
We believe the most significant way to reduce healthcare costs is to educate the our community and the public on ways to maintain their health and prevent disease.
Our purpose is to help build healthier communities. Through the help of our local volunteer health professionals, we can make Ottawa the most healthy city possible.
