The Health Center has many resources available to our band members, from information pamphlets to information workshops relating to Health and Wellness. Due to the high rate of Diabetes in First Nation communities there are many prevention and weight control programs, including Foot Clinics to help with foot care. There is a Dental Hygienist available and a Children’s Oral Health Initiative program for Dental Care. Prenatal programs and services are available for parents and babies, along with parenting workshops. Flu Clinics are held during flu season.
