What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners (NP’s) have been providing care since the 1960’s. NP’s are Registered Nurses who had received extensive additional formal education and experience. This designation gives Nurse Practitioner the authority to perform certain things beyond what a Registered Nurse can do.

Access to healthy food is the backbone for the prevention of chronic disease and healthy growth and development of our community. How we get, as well as the types of foods we acquire is related to our health. Food security (having enough food to eat) is key to personal well-being; yet many people in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas not only have trouble getting enough to eat, costs of food can be a major burden.
