A health consultant with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region says a new project is bringing First Nations wellness methods together with western medicine to enhance Aboriginal health outcomes.

The Approaching Cancer Care and Prevention Holistically program was recently awarded a grant by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Eagle Moon Health Office consultant Dorothy Lloyd says the unique project will introduce traditional Aboriginal health expertise to healthcare experts in the region.

Lloyd says the project was awarded $150,000 over two years.
