Treaty 2 Territory – Pinaymootang First Nation Chief Garnet Woodhouse & Council took time this week to honour and congratulate their very own Dr. Kyle Zachary Hall.
After 7 years of determination and hard work, Kyle graduated from Max Rady College of Medicine at the University of Manitoba and is destined to begin his work in the field of psychiatry.
Kyle has shared that he is very aware of the disparities between #Indigenous
and non-Indigenous people when it comes to health care delivery. He plans to work as a psychiatrist for Nations that are in need and to advocate for the resources to help bridge the systemic gaps that our Nations and members currently endure.
“A lot of hard work, dedication and passion towards this achievement has enabled him to reach this milestone” comments Chief Garnet Woodhouse. “And for that, the community of Pinaymootang is tremendously proud”.
“Becoming a healer in medicine is one of the biggest accomplishments that needs to be recognized, especially being of Indigenous descent. It allows for all to fully understand the lived reality of Indigenous people and brings great comfort knowing someone like Zach, will be working to care for the well-being of our people” adds Chief Garnet Woodhouse.
Dr. Zach Hall will be starting work in the field of Psychiatry. Zach is currently engaged and plans to wed Paige Van Der Zweep next week, who has also completed her studies in Family Medicine. They both mentioned that they come as a package deal. Congratulations!
On behalf of our Treaty 2 Territory, we congratulate the Pinaymootang Fist Nation for their part in helping Zach on his journey!
Like always, when an individual graduates, it isn’t just them and their family who win; the entire Nation wins!
