Building new relationships for the health and well-being of northern First Nations People and Communities

This month we are featuring the Thinkpiece created for the webinar “Partnering for Change: Building new relationships for the health and well-being of northern First Nations people and communities”.

The piece was written by Hilary McGregor from Northern Health. The Thinkpiece addresses the importance of First Nations Health collaboration and the changes happening in the north.

In light of the newly created First Nations Health Authority and as part of our ongoing provocative Citizens Series Webinars (hosted by BCHC and Northern Health) we recently hosted the webinar “Partnering for Change:Building new relationships for the health and well-being of northern FirstNations people and communities”.  
This webinar in particular provided the opportunity for speakers from Northern Health, the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), and the Northern First Nations Health Partnership Committee to share their perspectives on the partnership work undertaken in northern BC to improve the health and well-being of First Nations people and communities. 


The webinar recording and a range of informative materials and resources on this topic are available on our BCHC website and can be found
