The shortage has Six Nations working to make it more attractive for doctors to provide services in the community. Six Nations Elected Councillor Greg Frazer and Jennifer Smith, executive director of the Six Nations Family Health Team gave a presentation about their progress and next steps to recruitment at the Six Nations Elected Council (SNEC)’s Political Liaison meeting on January 23. “We’re flagged, as other communities are [for a shortage of doctors and] in finding and retaining doctors.
