Elders Luncheon 2014
Elders host UBC Aboriginal Family Practice Resident Doctors
The Snuneymuxw First Nation Health Centre was happy to host the Family Practice Resident Doctors from the UBC Aboriginal Family Practice Residency.
Dr. Danièle Behn Smith, Site Director, wanted to visit Snuneymuxw First Nation because they are practicing and living on Snuneymuxw territory.
There was a group of 10 doctors that attended the event at our Community Kitchen on July 4th for a traditional lunch and an opportunity to meet with some community
Elders and learn a bit of the culture.
Speaker Jerry Brown along with the Elders was present and our Elder Julia Wyse shared some Hulquiminum teachings.
The Health Centre also presented Darcy Good with a gift for his journey to UBC.
The Resident Doctors have a special interest in Aboriginal health and want to provide culturally safe care to aboriginal people.
SFN Drum Group participants Paul Wyse Seward and Gary Smith provided an awesome presentation for the doctors.
