  • Victoria couple makes donation to improve care for patients with cognitive health issues

    Oct 12, 2017 | Posted by: Rhys Mahannah


    A Victoria couple has pledged $2.5 million to improve care for patients with cognitive health issues.

    The generous donation, made by Neil and Susan Manning, kick-starts The Neil and Susan Manning Cognitive Health Initiative. The initiative features a partnership between Island Health, the University of Victoria, and the University of British Columbia, including UVic's Institute of Lifelong Health and UBC's Island Medical Program, and will aim to improve the diagnosis and treatment of dementia on Vancouver Island.
