First Nations Health Authority Chair in Heart Health and Wellness at St. Paul’s

Eighty per cent of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable but the most fundamental elements of prevention, like access to healthy food, are often out of reach for many Indigenous communities.

Co-developed by St. Paul’s, the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) and Simon Fraser University (SFU), the First Nations Health Authority Chair in Heart Health and Wellness at St. Paul’s is a global first that places a holistic focus on First Nations cardiac health to drive research that can improve First Nations health outcomes. The Heart & Stroke’s generous commitment of $500,000 to St. Paul’s Foundation, earmarked for this historic Chair position, will be put towards continued efforts to support closing the gap in Indigenous health.
