Nicole Chammartin & Bill Davidson speaking at the 2019 Fall Primary Care Conference General Plenary



At NWRPCA's recent 2019 Fall Primary Care Conference in Seattle, NWRPCA was delighted to welcome our Canadian community health center partners, in particular Scott Wolfe, Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Community Health Centres (CACHC) and Global Coordinator for the International Federation of Community Health Centres; Nicole Chammartin and Bill Davidson, the Co-Chairs  of CACHC and Executive Directors of community health centers in Winnipeg and the Toronto area, respectively; and our British Columbia health center colleagues Irene Clarence, Grey Showler and Bobbi Turner.  


Scott, Irene and Grey generously participated in two separate conference sessions, the first on “CHCs in British Columbia: Case Studies & Insights” and the second titled “Two Hearts. One Movement (US and Canadian Perspectives)”, and Nicole and Bill spoke from the podium at the Monday General Plenary.    All five were terrifically well-received by session and plenary audiences and throughout the conference as ambassadors from our northern neighbor. 


We at NWRPCA are extremely grateful for their participation in our event and for their commitment to international health center partnering.   NWRPCA is proud to announce that we’ve since joined the International Federation of Community Health Centres as a regional association member in order to strengthen this critical partnership and foster a global environment that invests in CHCs as the model of choice for primary health care.  We’ll describe in the next edition of Northwest Pulse the work we’ve done over the past several years with CACHC and our British Columbia counterparts and the exciting opportunities for cross-border dialogue and collaboration ahead!
