A day in the life of Marlene Lemieux

From MUHC nutritionist to MUHC volunteer extraordinaire!

In 2007, after three plus decades of working as a nutritionist at the Montreal Chest Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (MCI-MUHC), Marlene Lemieux retired. But she knew she still had more to give to the Chest. So Marlene rolled up her sleeves and became a volunteer. Today, she accompanies patients requiring long-term respiratory care two or three days a week at the Camille Lefebvre Pavilion of the Lachine Hospital, the new home of those she’s been assisting for so many years at the MCI-MUHC.
