A new health partnership was launched in Alberta on Tuesday with the goal of improving the coordination of health care service delivery to First Nations children in the province.
The First Nations Health Consortium is a partnership between the Bigstone Health Commission, the Kee Tas Kee Now Tribal Council, Maskwacis Health Services and Siksika Nation.
“This consortium will be the link between those families and connecting with the services,” said Tyler White, CEO with Siksika Health Services and president of the First Nations Health Consortium. “Our responsibility is to support, advocate and provide referrals… for First Nations children in the Alberta region.”
