Community Health Team

The Community Health Teams are a joint partnership between the IWK Health Centre (Primary Health) and the Nova Scotia Health Authority Central Zone. The Community Health Teams offer FREE Heath and Wellness Programs and Wellness Navigation services in your community. The range of programs and services offered by each Community Health Team are shaped by what we have heard citizens need to best support their health.

Your Community Health Team: 

  • Offers FREE group health and wellness programs at different times and community locations to make it easier for you to access sessions close to home. Sessions are related to:
    • Parenting
    • Managing risk factors
    • Food, nutrition and weight management
    • Physical activity
    • Emotional wellness
  • Offers FREE wellness navigation to help you prioritize health goals and connect to resources that you need for your family. Call 902-460-4560 to book your appointment with the IWK Navigator.
  • Works closely together with community organizations toward building a stronger and healthier community.
