Leading by Example – Wellness Champion Resource

Date: 2015-2017

EcoPlan worked with the First Nations Health Authority (in collaboration with the First Nations Health Directors Association and the First Nations Health Council) on a Health and Wellness Champion resource entitled Leading by Example: Inspiring Stories of Health, Wellness and Leadership. This resource profiles eleven BC First Nations leaders who are all leading by example in health and wellness in their communities, and it also offers tips and suggestions on how to take up and promote a health and wellness agenda as a First Nations leader (at home, in the community, at the council table, and so on). Resource development involved collaborative work with FNHA staff, feedback and input from the FNHDA and the FNHC, and interviews with First Nations leaders.
