Letter: Praise for the experts keeping Islanders safe and healthy

Dear Editor:

I would like to recognize the good doctors and health professionals that we have on Manitoulin that serve those of us on our beautiful Island so well. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team, especially in this COVID time. They quietly and conscientiously work behind the scenes to keep us healthy and heal us when we are sick. 

As a community health nurse for M’Chigeeng I support the mums and babies often in their homes. I just wanted to especially thank Dr. Barss and Dr. Quackenbush and midwife Christina Therrien and birth attendant Earlene Angevine for their dedication to safe birthing on Manitoulin. They are giving families the birth experiences they desire as long as all is normal. I am thrilled when I hear this from my mums. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated health professionals on Manitoulin.
