Celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Month
Throughout National Indigenous Peoples Month, we are celebrating the strength and resilience of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people by highlighting some great work taking place throughout the organization.
One silver lining of the pandemic has been the development of some great partnerships between Indigenous communities/organizations and AHS that we hope to continue to foster into the future. While we know we have a lot of work to do yet, we have seen what is possible when we work together.
Joining AHS CEO Dr. Verna Yiu today to discuss what they have learned and experienced while working with Indigenous peoples and communities throughout pandemic are:
- Dr. Esther Tailfeathers, Senior Medical Director, Indigenous Wellness Core
- Dr. Alika Lafontaine, an anesthesiologist from Grande Prairie who is the newly appointed and first Indigenous President of the Canadian Medical Association.
