OTTAWA — The First Nations Health Managers Association (FNHMA) is excited about the rollout of its weekly virtual town halls featuring information about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on APTN. The virtual town halls, which are held on Wednesdays at the FNHMA Facebook page and other sites, have been rebroadcast on Saturdays at 5 p.m. since April 17 on APTN.
“Altogether, we have now done 40 town halls since last March (2020) primarily just sharing with various Facebook pages and the Indigenous media and radio stations and working with ihtoday.ca,” says Marion Crowe, CEO at FNHMA. “So we’re super delighted that people are tuning in to get their credible and reliable information from the First Nations Health Managers Association.”
Crowe says they decided to continue doing the virtual town halls due to the rise in cases of COVID-19 variants of concern.
