Updating the 2008 Prairie North Health Region Health Status Report
The purpose of the Health Status report is to provide a snapshot of the health of the population served by the Prairie North Regional Health Authority (PNRHA). Its vision of “healthy people in healthy communities” serves as the driving force of the report in hopes to better understand the social, economic, physical, political and cultural context within the PNHRA. For the intern, the PNRHA provides the necessary organizational environment, support, mentor and supervision to the intern in a public health setting while the student accomplishes the given project. The PNRHA is able to focus on other areas of importance and focus on its mission to achieve the safest and best possible care, experience and health for the community it serves.
