The BC Salmon Farmers Association made a generous gesture at its Annual General Meeting and Business Summit in the Salmon Capital of the World Oct. 13 and 14.

The preeminent event for aquaculture in B.C. involves the aquaculture industry, government, First Nations, community leaders and academia.

This year, in lieu of speaker honorariums, the BC Salmon Farmers Association (BCSFA) chose to donate $1,000 to the Hospital Foundation to support the purchase of a Baby Anne Doll for Campbell River Hospital’s Maternity Department.

Annie is a newborn-sized doll, which is used for teaching purposes during NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Provider courses).

It is like CPR but for newborns which means there are some fundamental differences on what to do.

All nurses, doctors and midwives working on maternity have to re-certify every two years. The course is offered locally, with instructors from Campbell River Hospital.

The training includes techniques like how to properly apply an oxygen mask, how to intubate and how to use correct technique when performing chest compressions on a newborn.

“Collectively, the members of the BCSFA are working with many organizations to foster vibrant coastal communities in British Columbia,’ said Jeremy Dunn, executive director, of BCSFA.  “And we are proud to support the important work of the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.”

To support the doctors, nurses and other key members of the local healthcare team, you can make a donation to the Hospital Foundation either online at, or by calling, 250-850-2418.
