            If you like complex systems and want to have a hand in shaping our health-care delivery, then the Central East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) wants you.

            The LHIN is looking for community members to participate in a new Patient and Family Advisory Committee (PFAC).

            According to a statement from the LHIN, the committee will “serve as a forum for

dialogue among community members as they advise the Central East LHIN on issues and perspectives related to health system goals and objectives.”

            The network wants to put together a committee that will “reflect the diversity of the people and communities within the Central East LHIN”—and “a broad range of lived experiences.”

            According to Chief Executive Officer Deborah Hammons, “when people are actively involved in managing their own health and wellness, as well as creating their own heath care and community solutions, they will live healthier lives in healthier communities.”

            Patients and their family or caregivers who live within the Central East LHIN’s geographic region—which includes both Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough County—are encouraged to apply to serve. Visit centraleastlhin.on.ca and fill out an expression of interest.
