MGEU puts powerful health care ad back on airwaves

"i didn't even know all these professions existed, but these people, amazing people gave me my life back."

Winnipeg (24 July 2017) — The Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU/NUPGE) is bringing a powerful, award-winning ad about health care professionals back to airwaves this summer. “

'Woke' tells the story of a man’s recovery from brain trauma and how so many health care professionals — including paramedics, ultrasound, EKG and lab technologists, pharmacists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists — were vital to his survival.

With so many cuts to Manitoba’s health care system over the last several months, the ad is a timely reminder about the importance of the people delivering our care — on the frontlines and behind the scenes. They are all key parts of a system that ensures Manitobans receive the health care they expect and deserve.

The ad will be running online until August 14.
