The services of the health centre are available to all Chippewas of Nawash residents and band membership. At the centre we deliver programs that promote health and prevent disease. In partnership with other community programs, we offer regular workshops and activities that are geared towards healthy living and a greater sense of well being for all of our clients.
We offer a prenatal nutrition program, a monthly physician's clinic, foot care services and medical transportation. The chronic disease prevention program is aimed towards the prevention of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The communicable disease program helps control the spread of vaccine preventable diseases. The environmental awareness program involves water sampling and testing for West Nile Virus. The Chippewas of Nawash Health Centre is part of the Emergency Response team that is capable of dealing with emergencies whenever the health of it's residents is threatened. It is staffed 5 days a week with a registered community health nurse and community representatives.
