Content of the article

Dr Imran Khan will take office in October.

The Sudbury District Health Board approved Khans on Thursday

at its last meeting before the summer break.

Medical Officer of Health Dr Penny Sutcliffe called Khan’s appointment to the post great news.

We were really thrilled, Sutcliffe said, adding that Khan had spent time working with public health during his residency training. Many of us in public health know him and his work.

He lives in Sudbury with his family and is pretty excited about starting with us, but maybe not as excited as we are about him.

Khan will work with Sutcliffe in pursuing the mandate of the health units. His term will begin Oct. 24, a delay that Sutcliffe attributed to remaining rotations in Kahn’s residence at NOSM University.

Khan also holds a Masters in Public Health from the University of Waterloo. Recently, he passed his public health and preventive medicine research exams at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Board Chairman Rene Lapierre said the search for the right candidate to fill the position was long and thorough. Lapierre said he looked forward to working with Khan.

The first impression is (that he) is a good fit for our society, Lapierre said. He is very ambitious to be able to start his work and really wants to put down roots here in Sudbury.

We look forward to Dr. Khan’s many contributions to the promotion and protection of health in the districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin.

At their June 16 meeting, board members also reviewed a briefing note from Public Health to the provincial Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

The briefing note is a request for the ministry to review funding needs for the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program, which provides home visits to pregnant women and parents of young children in need of support.

Sutcliffe said the request is just the latest step in the organization’s ongoing efforts to get more money from the provincial government for the program.

It’s really about helping kids get a good start in life and reducing inequality early on, Sutcliffe said.

The program has not received a funding increase since 2015, which has resulted in a significant erosion of operating costs and staffing.

We really have no ability to formally request funding increases for this program, in Sudbury or anywhere else in the province,” she said. It was a problem before the pandemic and it certainly (was) increased during and after the pandemic.

The briefing note, which describes the program itself and the needs that must be met for the program to continue to operate effectively, received unanimous support from the board.

The Board of Health has now adjourned for the remainder of the summer. Their next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 15.

The Local Journalism Initiative is made possible with funding from the federal government.
