We’re proud of the great work by our Advisory Councils. Council members volunteer their time to provide feedback from lived experience, listen to the people in their communities and are committed to giving valuable feedback to AHS. They represent many different experiences, cultures and ages, and provide critical feedback that informs decisions that affect how AHS delivers health services and cares for Albertans. Visit this page regularly to read more about them, what they’re passionate about, and why they like being involved.
