Rural Health Week and the Importance of Rural Recruitment
AHS is committed to meeting the health needs of Alberta's diverse rural communities now and in the future. We want to make sure all Albertans have access to quality health services, wherever they live.
Rural healthcare providers are important contributors in their communities. Not only do their healthcare skills and practices enhance the quality of rural life, but they also contribute beyond a professional level. They are friends, neighbours and volunteers in their local community.
As Rural Health Week begins on May 30, this week’s vlog features a few guests to share their thoughts on the importance of rural health and to give us an update on our rural recruitment efforts.
Joining the vlog are:
- Dr. Sandra Duke, Co-Chair of the Chinook Primary Care Network Board of Directors.
- Tracy Sopkow, CEO, the Rural Health Professions Action Plan.
- Kerrie Stanko, Senior Advisor, Talent Management Strategies, Talent Acquisition.
