The Aboriginal Health Improvement Committee (AHIC) is a venue where you can bring your health care concerns, info on events and/or opportunities. AHIC members include health representatives from First Nations Communities, Aboriginal organizations (First Nations Inuit Health Branch, interim First Nations Health Authority, Friendship Centers, etc.), Metis and local Northern Health leadership. The AHICs meet to share information and work in partnership on identified health care issues facing Aboriginal people in the area.
To find out more about the AHIC in your area or if you have health care issues that you want to bring to the committee's attention, contact the Health Service Administrator. In the Vanderhoof/Lakes/Omineca area, your contact is April Hughes at April.Hughes@northernhealth.ca or at 250-567-6214.
You can forward information about your upcoming events/opportunities or information that you would like to share with AHIC members to the administrative assistant for your area. In Vanderhoof/Lakes/Omineca this is Lisa Puglas at Lisa.Puglas@northernhealth.ca or at 250-692-2414.
