March 8, 2007
Debra Wright, Manager Public Health Services is retiring effective March 31, 2007. Deb has worked in Prairie North Health Region since Jan 2005 and although she has been with us just this short time, we will miss her. She brought to her position a wealth of knowledge and skills accumulated throughout a 28 year nursing career. Her skills and knowledge particularly in the areas of Public Health Nursing and Population Health Promotion have been very helpful for program development and future direction setting. Debís background, which included working in mental health and public health both in cities and in the north, has provided many perspectives for us to consider. We have learned a lot from her and the Region has greatly benefited by the work she has done here.
We appreciate the commitment Deb demonstrated through the weekly commute from Candle Lake. She is, in retirement, looking forward to being closer to her family and to raising the new family member, a Havenese pup.
Please join me in wishing Deb all the best in her retirement!
Karen Kenny, Director, Population Health Services, PNHR
