A partnership between the Windsor-Essex Community Health Centre, Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre and the Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre will see a Nurse Practitioner located at the Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre within the Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre.
The new Nurse Practitioner will be providing care for local Aboriginal families and individuals to help them live a balanced state of well-being by sharing and promoting holistic health practices.
This new full-time position will see a base funding investment of $122,700 by the Erie St. Clair LHIN into the Windsor-Essex Community Health Centre.
