Health Promotion is an important part of Summerville Family Health Team's activity. The FHT has dedicated Health Promotion Specialists working in this area.

Health Promotion Specialists (HPS) have a role in the area of health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management within the family health team setting. Health promoters work with an interdisciplinary team to facilitate various programs such as “Maximize Your Health” Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management, “Let's Start, Healthy Heart” cardiovascular risk education. The goal is a proactive, patient-centred approach that empowers patients to take greater responsibility for their own health.
