Join Marion to learn about the First Nations Health Managers Association (FNHMA) and hear her story as a First Nations leader in health. Have questions and are too afraid to ask? This will be a safe space to unpack those questions and gain insight into committing to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, specifically those numbered 18 to 24, which address health and healthcare. The First Nations Health Managers Association is a national non-profit organization exclusively serving First Nation leaders in health with certification and professional development.
