The chronic disease prevention program is aimed towards the prevention of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The communicable disease program helps control the spread of vaccine preventable diseases. The environmental awareness program involves water sampling and testing for West Nile Virus. The Chippewas of Nawash Health Centre is part of the Emergency Response team that is capable of dealing with emergencies whenever the health of it's residents is threatened. It is staffed 5 days a week with a registered community health nurse and community representatives.
Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN)
OTN is a two-way videoconferencing system that provides patients with access to care at all hospitals and hundreds of participating health care locations across the province. Using this convenient technology we can save you the time and cost of travelling long distances for appointments with your Health Care Provider (HCP). OTN appointments with your HCP also reduce your risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
The Health Care Centre boardroom is equipped for OTN videoconferencing. Contact the Health Centre to make your appointment.
Questions about OTN, or other health issues? Call Springdawn Keeshig, Community Health Nurse.
