Health Forum

The Port Alice Health Forum Society

Attempts to educate the public on health related issues by providing seminars, workshops meeting and by collecting and disseminating information on that topic.
Also to attempt to provide support services to persons with debilitating diseases, illnesses and conditions such as personal and home care for the aged and transportation services to medical appointments.  We attempt to provide the citizens of Port Alice with an opportunity to gain input into VIHA (Vancouver Island Health Authority or now known as Island Health) decisions regarding the provision of Health Care in Port Alice. We attempt to disseminate information from the Ministry of Health, VIHA, Regional Board or any other vital source to the citizens of Port Alice. We gather information within the Village of Port Alice regarding Health Care needs. We foster good health in Port Alice and the Community by Education and health related activities. We lobby all levels of government to seek funding that meets the health care needs of the residents of the Village of Port Alice and the Port Alice Health Centre. We raise funds to be used to the enhancement of health care services within the Village of Port Alice.  Basically we attempt to make Port Alice a Healthier Community, our work is ongoing!!
