Indigenous healthcare is getting a boost in Wallaceburg and Walpole Island with the addition of a new doctor.

The Chatham-Kent Community Health Centre is welcoming Dr. Samantha Boshart to the team.

Dr. Boshart serves on the Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada and is the Regional Aboriginal Cancer Lead for Cancer Care Ontario and completed her medical training in nearby London.

Dr.Boshart will work out of the two sites part time to start, but will be full time in the spring of 2018.
