Tess (Theresa) Healy
I live in Prince George BC. I work for Northern Health in the Population Health program and I also teach at UNBC. I am taking the challenge because I used to live on welfare and remember the shame and challenges that accompanied it. Yet, it is a support system, designed to help us when we are in trouble and look where I got to because the system was there for me. Regarding fears and worries taking the challenge: I have to travel a lot and worry about how I will be able to manage the restricted money when I am on the road. I am also diabetic and worry about how I will be able to manage my illness and my exercise regime on a restricted diet.
