Province creates native health adviser Add to ...

It's unacceptable that native people live an average of seven years less than other British Columbians, Premier Gordon Campbell said yesterday in announcing the appointment of the province's first aboriginal health adviser.

The appointment is part of a 10-year plan to improve the health of B.C. aboriginals.

Evan Adams said he's aware that his new post as physician adviser isn't without challenges, but he's excited about being able to make a difference.
