Did you know?
- Canada’s Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) experience greater health disparities than non-Indigenous Canadians, including poorer health outcomes and shorter life expectancies.
- But not Indigenous peoples all experience poor health. Some communities lead the country in community-based health promotion and in holistic health approaches.
Most First Nations communities manage and deliver public health, health promotion, and mental health services. More complex care needs are accessed from provincial/territorial health systems.
In First Nations community health, the health manager is a key leader and vital link to health organizations and systems. These health managers are supported by the First Nations Health Managers Association (FNHMA).
Join us on March 2, when Marion Crowe, Executive Director of FNHMA, explains the critical role FNHMA plays in providing leadership for health managers. This interactive webinar will help participants understand how FNHMA supports professional development, networking, and research for health managers, and how this relates to implementing quality health standards and practices in First Nations communities.
