UBC Okanagan to help Princeton health care crisis

The town of Princeton has turned to researchers at the University of B.C. Okanagan to try to figure out how to fix health care problems in the community.

Since May, people in Princeton have had to make due with an emergency room that’s closed 4 nights a week and they have been lobbying and meeting with the Interior Health Authority and provincial government officials to change that, but there’s still no solution.

So community leaders decided to bring in some expert help by calling researchers from UBC Okanagan to brainstorm ways to improve health care in Princeton.

C.B.C. Reporter Brady Strachan spoke to people in Princeton about the issues.
