FORT McMURRAY – Local and area residents are invited to attend a meeting of the Wood Buffalo Health Advisory Council (HAC) on May 22.
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 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Nistawoyou Friendship Centre, 8310 Manning Ave. The council will hear from members of the public starting at approximately 6 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.
