Under Langs leadership, a community needs assessment was done and a foundation for the CHC established.

Programs & Services
The North Dumfries Community Health Centre offers various programs for children, youth and adults both at the centre, and at facilities in our catchment area.

- Pole Walking
- Learn the technique and enjoy the benefits of pole walking!
- Take A Break
- It’s just that! Take a Break out of your day and enjoy social time with friends. Play games, discuss current events, or go on an outing!
Additional adult programs are offered throughout the year.
To provide recreational activities for youth, we offer programs at our main site in Ayr, as well as Platville and Drumbo on a rotating basis.
Baby Friendly Initiative
The Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) is a global initiative started by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF in 1991. The goal of the BFI is to protect, promote and support breastfeeding, and to support informed decision-making about infant feeding.
Langs is pursuing BFI designation. We promote exclusive breastfeeding and we welcome you to breastfeed at our site.
