Protecting the Health of Our Citizens
Our public health team is focused on illness prevention, health promotion and health protection for all of our community and families. Currently our team includes Public Health Nurses (PHNs), Community Health Representatives (CHRs) and a medical driver who assists in delivering patients and programs. Much of our work happens in the Centre, but we often provide aid in other spaces in our community, such as homes, schools and workplaces.
We offer a wide range of health and wellness care. We keep the community safe by providing everything from immunizations and mom and baby visits, to flu clinics and environmental inspections of mould, water and sewage. Our education programs include topics such as baby nutrition and development, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), sexually transmitted infections, and diabetes management – just to name a few.
