health initiatives
As part of the BC Pediatric Society vision of advocating for improved health, we have undertaken a number of health initiatives aimed at improving the health of children and youth in B.C.

Our projects range from education about the importance of immunization (including the importance of non-publicly funded vaccines) to initiatives aimed at decreasing wait times for appropriate mental health services for children and youth.

We recently interviewed our Advocacy Chair, Dr. Wilma Arruda, a community pediatrician in Nanaimo. Dr. Arruda is passionate about advocacy; to read her whole interview, please click here .
