Centre will offer traditional Indigenous and Western approaches to medicine
An emergency care clinic catering exclusively to Indigenous people and their needs is opening in Montreal this week — the first of its kind in the city.
Anyone who identifies as Indigenous will be able to walk into the clinic — initiated by the Indigenous Health Centre of Tiotihà:ke (IHCT) — and receive adapted care from a doctor and nurses.
The clinic will blend traditional Indigenous and Western approaches to medicine in order to provide physical, mental and spiritual care.
Michelle Reis-Amores, clinic director and executive director of the IHCT, says she’s both excited and very busy ahead of the opening on Wednesday.
