First Nations Health Authority Visits SFN 2016
On Wednesday, July 13, several FNHA representatives from the funding arrangements department visited SFN as part of their yearly site visit initiative.
• Bobby Chan; Manager
• Anton Kyrylyuk; Sr. Advisor
• Karen Forshaw; Agreement Development Lead
• Alice Liu; Funding Arrangements Developer
• Lisa Richardson; Funding Arrangements Developer
• Jet Fernandez; Funding Arrangements Developer
• Imtiaz Buksh; Funding Arrangements Developer
• Tina Manson; Funding Arrangements Developer.
Snuneymuxw’s Health department was on hand to greet and introduce them to SFN. This was followed by a brief tour of the Health Centre, then a delicious lunch.
After lunch the attendees were given a ceremonial blanket with words shared by Elder Geraldine Manson and a small gift of appreciation was provided for their visit to SFN. The group was then taken to view the new Health Centre building site that is hoped to be completed in 2017.
The visit by the FNHA staff was important because it helps them to become familiar with SFN’s Health Centre operations and programs. Besides meeting the dedicated health centre workers, FNHA had an opportunity to learn about both the successes and challenges of the health centre’s day-to-day operations. One comment shared by one of the visiting team said, “It is good to see programs in action since we only see what is asked for us to write in the agreements”.
Thank you to council members Regan Seward and Kate Good for providing the leadership support during this visit and a big thank you to all the Elders that attended.
