As Nova Scotians, it is important to stay healthy and well. When we have a health concern, we visit our family practice. Our health needs are changing and family practice is changing too.
Collaborative family practice teams have doctors, nurse practitioners, family practice nurses and other health providers working together to provide primary care in communities.
We know that accessing a family doctor or nurse practitioner can be a challenge for some people. Nova Scotia Health Authority is creating more and strengthening existing collaborative family practice teams across the province to improve access to the primary care you need.
We would like to share more about collaborative family practice teams, hear your thoughts, and learn what we need to know to make these teams a success in Nova Scotia.
Please join us for a conversation about collaborative family practice teams on:

The Town of Wolfville has embarked on a master plan exercise for East End Gateway, encompassing Willow Park trail connections, and the leased Nova Scotia Power land on the opposite side of Main Street. The master plan will aim to create a sense of arrival and place, create a welcoming space for people entering the town via Main Street, review and make recommendations regarding recreational uses of the site, improvements to trail connections throughout the area, and creation of a public open space that reflects the unique landscape of Wolfville and surroundings. The resulting design will provide the Town of Wolfville with a plan that can be implemented in stages over time.
The consultant for this project, Ekistics Plan + Design, has developed 2 high-level concept options for the site, which are available to view below. We are seeking your input on which concepts you prefer, what are your priorities for implementation, and what level of programming you feel is appropriate for Willow Park.
Concept 1 - Connecting with the Creek
Concept 2 - The Harvest

The Eastern Kings Memorial (EKM) Health Foundation recently celebrated the 20th Anniversary of its Grants Program. The Trustees and Staff of the Foundation are proud to have served the 63 communities in the Eastern Kings catchment area since 1996.
The EKM Health Foundation is a charitable organization that funds health-related projects within Eastern Kings County.
The Foundation evolved from the closure in 1994 of the former Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital. Donations previously made to the former hospital were transferred to the Foundation with the intent that the income from these monies supports health-related projects in the local communities. The Foundation is directed by a volunteer Board consisting of 9 Trustees, along with an Administrative Assistant who manages the Office.
The EKM Health Foundation is pleased to accept donations, bequests, and other gifts. These gifts enable us to support healthier communities through giving. The Foundation also receives requests for financial support from various health-related organizations, funding projects through a bi-yearly grants program.
How does the EKM Health Foundation promote a healthier community?
The Foundation disburses approximately $150,000 annually to support:
