WRHA seeks advisory council members

  • Print

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is seeking a few fine folks.

The WRHA is looking for volunteers to share their perspectives on issues impacting the health care system in its six regions: St. James-Assiniboia/Assiniboine South, River East/Transcona, Seven Oaks/Inkster, St. Boniface/St. Vital, Downtown/Point Douglas, and River Heights/Fort Garry.

WRHA regional director of primary care Jeanette Edwards said the organization is looking for approximately five people in each region to serve three-year terms to candidly discuss assigned topics.

"What they can expect is an interactive, safe environment to really have a conversation about priority strategic issues," she said, noting recent topics have included organ donation and end-of-life care.

Councils generally meet six times per year, with an orientation in the beginning and a wrap-up meeting to cap things off. In between, there will be two discussions each on two health-care topics.

At meetings, dinner is provided, and transportation and child care can be arranged for individuals.

Edwards stressed if participants have specific concerns with the WRHA, they should contact the organization directly.

"We are absolutely committed as a region to hear those concerns and actually help the individual connect to the right place in the system," she said.

Those looking for more information or an application can contact Colleen Schneider at cschneider1@wrha.mb.ca or 204-940-8569. More information is also available at http://www.wrha.mb.ca/about/chac/index.php.

The deadline for applications is April 26.
