Happy Volunteer Week to All Patient Partners!

It’s National Volunteer Week from April 15 – 21, and we’d like to take this time to recognize all of you who volunteer in our health care system! We’ve accomplished so much this year, but we couldn’t have done it without the hard work of our patient partners. Thank you for all that you do to improve health care in BC!

We’ll be posting stories about how and why they got involved with PVN, recapping their most memorable engagement opportunities and sharing their hopes for the future. Check out our blog to make sure you don't miss a story!
