Seeking members for the AMA Indigenous Health Committee

September 25, 2017

The AMA is seeking member physicians to join its new Indigenous Health Committee. The committee is a new group with a longer-term mandate established to promote and operationalize the recommendations in the AMA Indigenous Health Policy adopted recently by the Board of Directors. The committee – with four physicians (chair plus three other physicians) – is structured to have two physicians of Indigenous background (First Nations or Métis); and two physicians of non-Indigenous background with experience in working with Indigenous communities. The committee will also include two Indigenous community members.

To indicate your interest in serving on the new Indigenous Health Committee, either as chair or as a member, please apply at: www.albertadoctors.org/leaders-partners/leaders/committees.

 

The Alberta Medical Association stands as an advocate for its physician members, providing leadership & support for their role in the provision of quality health care.
