The Stollery Awasisak Indigenous Health Program at the University of Alberta Hospital was created in 2016 to build bridges for Indigenous children. Some of the families have to travel up to 1,000 km. The program also builds a bridge between Alberta Health Services and Indigenous patients in terms of understanding rural and remote communities. The team at the Stollery works with nurses in the communities to ensure a smooth transition for children when they return home.
