EDMONTON – Local and area residents are invited to attend a meeting of the Greater Edmonton Health Advisory Council (HAC) on Thursday, Jan. 17.
This is an opportunity for the public to meet council members, provide feedback on health services, share views about local healthcare delivery and propose ideas for improvements.
Public feedback will be shared with local Alberta Health Services (AHS) leaders to inform their decision-making.
The meeting runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Room 4A9.016 of the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, 11220 83 Ave. There will be a presentation on organ transplants at 6:15 p.m. The council will hear from members of the public starting at 8 p.m.
HACs play an important role in supporting the strategic direction of AHS by engaging members of their communities throughout Alberta in a respectful, transparent and accountable manner. Public participation is essential to improving the quality and accountability of health services. Working in partnership with AHS is an important way to ensure that services are more responsive to the needs of those who use them.
