Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: Southside Health & Wellness Centre offers basic public health services to clients in the Southside area. This project expanded those services to include an autoclave, a centrifuge, and an audiometer. The new equipment enables the proponent to perform and process blood work locally, for which the clients previously needed to travel outside the community. The equipment reduces the time needed for locals to travel away from Southside to get the medical services, as well as lowering the risk of traveling for medical reasons. The equipment will have a long-term positive impact on the quality of life in the Southside area. Funding partners for this project include the NKDF Society, the Cheslatta Community Forest Legacy, and Southside Health & Wellness Centre.
