10 Years of Care

10 Years of Care

In 2017, we will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Wood Buffalo Primary Care Network, one of the first three PCNs formed in Alberta. We are thrilled to be embarking upon the task of connecting with the clinicians, community members, and patients who have defined our past Decade of Care; if you would like to be involved, we would love to hear from you. Do you have a story about how Primary Care affected your life? Please, feel free to share your experiences, anecdotes, and stories via the contact form at the bottom of the page.

We also always welcome your comments, concerns, and suggestions via email at

Your story is the most important part of our story.

We're interested in any and all thoughts that you have about Primary Care; these could be things that you learned or were surprised by with regard to your health, a feeling of accomplishment when it 'clicked' that you could manage your chronic disease, or even something that you're excited about being able to do now, as a result of living a healthier life.

Interested in telling your story, but still not quite sure what that might look like? Here's a great story that we received from one of our Weight Management patients:

"I came away with knowledge about who I am and real tools to combat old patterns. The clinicians cheer on patients as they take little steps, you know you are worth their time. The clinicians taught me that it is okay to take time for the program and not to feel guilty, an issue for many women. I have always had to utilize an extender when travelling on airplanes, but now I do not, I travel like everyone else. It amazed me that something so trivial, could signify so much in my life. For the first time in my life, I'm winning this battle that I had always been so afraid to face."
