Wabano Health Centre: a new model for Aboriginal health care
Ottawa may not have the largest urban Aboriginal population in Canada but it certainly has the most diverse. It is home to First Nations, Métis and the biggest Inuit population in the country.
Like any other city's Indigenous inhabitants there are challenges that differ from the average population.
Allison Fisher is the executive director for the Wabano Health Centre. It is a community-based clinic that's taking the principles and teachings of Aboriginal health and wellness and putting them into action. Fisher is the driving force.
Don Kelly speaks with Fisher about her passion for taking care of her community and why she didn't want the job in the first place.
Take a listen to the and let us know what you think of Fisher's efforts. Is there an Aboriginal health care worker in your community that's making a difference? Share your story in the comments section!
