About the COVID-19 Weekly Virtual Town Halls presented by FNHMA:

FNHMA is convening a weekly Virtual Town Hall Information Session & Q+A every Thursday to discuss the effects of the pandemic on affecting health managers, front line health workers, and First Nations communities.

These Town Halls are free and open to all health managers, front line health workers, First Nation Community members and the general public who are looking for transparent, clear information and advice related to COVID-19 – whether or not your Community is affected or not.

We see these meetings as an opportunity for us all to check in regularly, exchange reliable information, and identify the collective needs of our Peoples and Communities. Each meeting will feature updates from FNHMA, health experts from across the country, and other invited guests. At the same time, you’ll be able to connect with these health officials through email and take part in the Live Q+A session every week. Questions can be sent to [email protected] and, time permitted, will be answered that week during the Virtual Town Hall on Thursdays.

Please stay tuned on for updates of each Town Hall which will be livestreamed here on
