Vancouver Island Chapter Presents
Friday April, 11, 2014
The Vancouver Island Chapter invites you to join a physician panel of experts to hear the current status of the work of the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) and the focus on public health. The panel will offer insights into the role of the Medical Health Officer in providing regionally delivered programs to First Nations communities in BC. These services include Primary Care (i.e. First Nations Home and Community Care); Mental Health and Addictions Programs (i.e. NNADP), Maternal and Child Health, along with many other programs and services. FNHA is in the process of identifying opportunities for stronger coordination with provincial programs and services.
There will be opportunities to engage in a dialogue with the physician leaders who are working directly with the FHNA. So bring your questions!
Physician panel includes:
Dr. Naomi Dove, Director of Health Promotion and Prevention, FNHA
Dr. Naomi Dove is the Director of Health Promotion and Prevention at the First Nations Health Authority. Naomi is originally from rural northwestern Ontario, but has lived in BC since 1997.
Dr. Shannon Waters, Director of Health Surveillance, FNHA
Option: A live webinar session is also available beginning at NOON. We hope local members will attend in person to participate in this presentation.
There is limited space so please register early. Thank you.
