The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is looking for community members to sit on its Community Health Advisory Council that represents southeast Winnipeg.
The organization, which operates hospitals and other health facilities in Winnipeg, is seeking St. Boniface and St. Vital area residents with a broad interest in health and the factors that impact health in communities.
Organizers are looking for members from a wide range of employment backgrounds, age groups and cultural perspectives, and applicants do not have to be experts in the health field.
Members will serve three-year terms and meet six times between September and May to share their experiences and brainstorm ideas.
In the past, councils have created reports on subjects such as immigrant and refugee health, hospital patient flow, stigmas surrounding mental health and public trust in the health system.
According to the WRHA, dinner will be provided, babysitting will be paid for and transportation can be arranged.
Applications are due by Fri., April 26 and can be found online at http://www.wrha.mb.ca/about/chac/index.php.
