Targeting heart failure in Northern Ontario Indigenous communities

In May 2022, Dr. Heather Ross — scientific lead at the Ted Rogers Centre and co-lead of the TRANSFORM HF program — led a team to Moosonee and Moose Factory to deepen our partnership with Weeneebayko Area Health Authority.

Following a COVID-imposed hiatus, the collaboration to address heart failure in the Weeneebayko region was renewed with a visit consisting of in-person clinics, community outreach, and a sharing circle.

“Our partnership has always been centered on ensuring people in the James and Hudson Bay region have access to the care they deserve,” says Dr. Ross.
