The Northern Ontario School of Medicine has just wrapped up its trip to Hearst for its annual meeting. NOSM says Hearst was chosen as the meeting location due to its extensive service to both the town’s Francophone community and the area’s Aboriginal population.
Communication is an important part of delivering healthcare as both the Notre-Dame Hospital and Nord-Aski Family Health Team work extensively with Aboriginal and Francophone patients. The meeting ran from the 12th to the 13th.
NOSM sends students every year to work in Francophone and Indigenous communities.
