|Description||Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre programs and services include traditional healing methods, primary health care, high blood pressure and diabetes screening and treatment, family planning, among many others. These are provided in a culturally-appropriate manner to Aboriginal people within the City of Greater Sudbury and associate First Nations. Clients are attached to a team of providers rather than an individual physician or nurse practitioner.
