November is Diabetes Awareness Month!
Yesterday, during the annual nurse's training in Montreal, Jonathan Linton gave an insightful presentation on what it is like to live with diabetes in Eeyou Istchee. He shared how he coped with the diagnosis, and how he lives with it today. Jonathan has a busy life being the father of two young children and is a snowmobile racer. #diabetesawareness #indigenoushealth #firstnations #eeyouistchee #creenation #firstnations
Today, we witnessed the installation of a piece of Cree culture right in the heart of Montreal. A group of dedicated men installed a teepee on the grounds of the Nouvel Hotel in Montreal for the upcoming Annual Nurses Training that starts tomorrow and runs until November 23.
In addition to the nurses trainings, this year our organization will also be hosting a special Meet and Greet for Nurses and Health Professionals at the Nouvel Hotel on November 17-18 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm! Our staffing department will be there to give information about career opportunities at the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay.
Come and learn about Cree culture, meet nurses and health professionals and apply on the spot! #nurses #nursing #eeyouistchee #montreal #nouvelhotel #creenation
Remember to get your flu vaccine this year!
Starting November 1st, the influenza vaccine (flu shot) is available for everyone in Eeyou Istchee. It's free, and it's the best protection against influenza and its complications.
At the CBHSSJB, we recommend it especially for Elders, babies over 6 months, people living with chronic illness (like diabetes), and healthcare workers (Dr. Kitty got hers!)
Please contact your local CMC for more information on where and when to get your flu shot. #flushot #fluvaccination #indigenoushealth #eeyouistchee #creenation
