Interlake-Eastern RHA Seeks Local Health Involvement Group Participants

Interlake-Eastern RHA is seeking applicants who want to be a part of health care decision making. Local Health Involvement Group (LHIG) members will explore ideas and provide advice to Interlake-Eastern RHA's Board of Directors for consideration on topics directly linked to the Boards’ strategic priorities. Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority residents who have an interest in improving health care in the region and who are able to commit the time required to participate in the Local Health Involvement Group are encouraged to apply. The deadline for LHIG applications is July 31.

All applications will be reviewed by a committee of the RHA’s Board of Directors. People who are selected will participate in one of three LHIGs across the region. It’s expected there will be at least four, two hour meetings of each Local Health Involvement Group per year. LHIG members will also receive an orientation to the RHA in late August. Each group can determine if they’d like to take advantage of conference calling and webinars to reduce travel requirements in winter months.

LHIG Composition by Geography:

Central  – reflects residents living in the northern most limit of East St. Paul, including Selkirk, Beausejour, Oakbank and Stonewall.

East  – reflects residents living in the area that starts at the point of intersection with the Eastern boundary of the Province of Manitoba and the Southern limit of the Trans Canada, including all towns and First Nations on the East side of lake Winnipeg.

West  –  reflects residents living in the northwestern most limit of the RM of East St. Paul to the intersection with the shoreline of Lake Manitoba including all towns and First Nation communities up to and including Berens River First Nation.
