Conference ends at health centre

Canada India Networking initiative wrapped up on June 22 in Surrey

The Canada India Networking initiative wrapped up June 22 with an open house at the South Asian Health Centre.

CINI conference delegates and members of the public attended the event to learn more about services provided at the centre. Information was provided on the nurse practitioner-led primary care clinic for unattached patients, diabetes clinics and the centre’s women’s health clinic.

The health centre – a partnership between the Surrey/North Delta Division of Family Practice and Fraser Health – was the brainchild of the 2010 CINI conference.

“A first of its kind, the centre provides an opportunity to strengthen Fraser Health’s programs with a focused popular-based approach for South Asians,” CINI 2014 chair Dr. Arun Garg said in a news release. “CINI identified a need for such a centre and congratulates the two founding organizations for innovation in primary care and chronic disease management.”

The vision for the centre is that it will serve as a “true health home for local South Asians” and will offer a one-stop referral point for a number of services, ranging from chronic-disease management to elder health and falls prevention support.
