Fort St. John Proclaims June 6
"What Matters to You?" Day
The mayor of Fort St. John, Lori Ackerman, has proclaimed June 6, 2017 to be “What Matters to You?” Day. This is a wonderful recognition of the power of asking what matters.
On June 6, three different stations will be set up at the Fort St. John Hospital. Volunteers from the hospital foundation and a local life insurance company, a coach from the Northern Health Specialist Services Committee, and several PVN Patient Partners will all be on hand to share information and engage patients and family members in conversations about what matters to them. Information collected from patients and families will be themed by Northern Health and used to improve patient care for the people of Fort St. John.
The effort to have the day proclaimed in the city was spearheaded by our patient partner Edwina Nearhood. We’re really thankful for her work on making this day such a momentous occasion in Fort St. John, and look forward to hearing about the day's events.
