Connect Health, a Vancouver based integrative medicine clinic that combines conventional medicine with complementary approaches, will host a fundraiser to help bring awareness to women and youth living in poverty. On Monday, April 30, all practitioners will donate 100% of the proceeds of their services to Beauty Night Society.

Beauty Night is the brainchild of Caroline MacGillivray, who began the organization after an experience she had volunteering at a women’s shelter. Since 2000, Beauty Night has given over 16,000 life-makeovers, life skills programming, and wellness services to marginalized women, thanks to a growing army of appreciated volunteers. “We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Regardless of socio-economic status, no one deserves to be invisible and isolated from community. We are thrilled to be the charity of choice for Connect Health’s wellness day. The monies raised will allow us to continue to meet the growing need of women and youth living in poverty,” noted Caroline. 

Dr. Melissa Carr, a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor who works at Connect Health, has been looking forward to collaborating with Caroline. Dr. Carr stated, “Caroline is extremely dedicated to this project and our clinic is very pleased to be a part of such an important cause.”

Services being donated for the event include acupuncture, biopuncture, MD integrative consultations, nutrition consultations, counseling sessions, mind-body therapy sessions, fitness assessments and more. Several local businesses have also donated prizes for attendees.

Connect Health’s aim is to provide effective whole person care by offering a collaborative and personalized combination of conventional medicine and complementary approaches. The organization is working to evolve the healthcare system by becoming leaders in clinical care, education, community outreach and research in the field of integrative medicine.
