First Nations Health Leaders Virtual Learning Exchange Workshop

Updated: May 5, 2023

The FNHMA partners with Healthcare Excellence Canada (HEC) to support the growth and development of First Nations health leaders through the First Nations Health Leaders Network, which provides peer-to-peer mentorship and knowledge-sharing opportunities for its members. In support of First Nations health managers, the Leaders Network will host a virtual learning series for FNHMA students and members throughout the 2023/2024 year.

These webinars will allow participants to learn about wise practices from experienced First Nations health leaders and share their knowledge and experiences with specific health leadership challenges. We hope participants will leave with tools and solutions to meet those challenges.

The first Virtual Event will take place on Wednesday, April 26th, at 12 pm EST.
