BAM and the team will also visit local biotech companies to thank the employees working on new innovations targeting COVID-19 or producing needed goods.
“Our heartfelt thanks to all you and your families for serving and supporting Manitoba at this time. These locally produced health and wellness products are a small gesture of thanks from your community”- Jason Leibert, VP, Business Development, MSPrebiotics Inc.
We have done great work to flatten the curve, but we know the work is not done yet- added Tracey Maconachie. “It is important to continue to protect the vulnerable, the elderly, the disenfranchised and these people do that every day.”
