Maternal and Child Health:
In the area of maternal and child health we believe that education is the key to the health of both mother and baby. Our staff offer family planning, prenatal classes, new baby assessments, clinic visits, numerous mom and baby and/or toddler programs, parenting classes, immunizations, and support for breast feeding moms, in addition to partnerships with local and external service providers for the benefit of our clients.

School Health and Teens:
The health of school children is strongly linked to their academic success. We strive to promote the health and well being of children so they can participate and succeed in school and life. Our staff members provide health education programs and screening services to approximately children from Daycare age to grade 8. We also provide a weekly drop-in for teens that covers a broad range of topics aimed at promoting healthy socialization, lifestyles, self esteem and resiliency.

Health Promotion:
Health Centre activities are based on the concept that education will lead to behaviour change and empowerment so community members can better manage their own health. Programming is in response to identified risks and health concerns unique to our First Nation within the context of the many determinants of health. The targeted areas are physical fitness, nutrition, smoking and chronic disease with a strong emphasis on diabetes.senior-hand
