The Town of Huntsville would like to inform the community that Mayor Scott Aitchison has been diagnosed with Angina. After consultation with his family doctor and further testing administered by Dr. Jan Goossens, Mayor Aitchison has been referred to Southlake Regional Health Centre for a coronary angiogram on Wednesday August 2, 2017.
The coronary angiogram procedure will assist the specialists to determine what medical procedures may be further required. During this time, Mayor Aitchison will continue his responsibilities as Mayor although his public schedule will be scaled back during treatment. Deputy Mayor Karin Terziano and members of Council will assist with Mayor Aitchison’s schedule.
“I am fortunate to be in good hands with my medical team and appreciate the support of my Council colleagues. I intend to share my experience with the community,” noted Mayor Aitchison, “and to emphasize the importance of knowing and recognizing the warning signs of heart disease.”
The Town of Huntsville will continue to keep residents informed.
