A Healthier You (May 2014)

We are very proud to share with you our tenth edition of A Healthier You. Brought to you by Northern Health and Glacier Media, the magazine is produced four times a year. Articles are written by northerners for northerners and cover a broad range of topics. This issue looks holistically at your health and wellness and explores ways in which Aboriginal peoples view health and wellness.

Some of the great articles look at traditional foods for all, local cultural travel highlights, and the feature article on a First Nations perspective on wellness. We also give updates on recent events, including the 2014 All Native Basketball Tournament.

In addition to the Northern Health staff, we would like to thank Northern BC Tourism and the First Nations Health Authority for their contributions to this edition.
