“I will continue to remain engaged in leadership and advocacy as I think it is paramount that health care workers are politically engaged and advocate for the health status of populations that historically have poorer health outcomes. I am excited to see what changes my involvement in Aboriginal Health advocacy may incite! Once again, I wish to warmly thank the Northwest Indian Housing Association for your generosity.”
