The Foundation would like to thank Oliver Janson for his 9 years of service to the board. Under his leadership as Chair, the DAHSCF funded numerous equipment purchases for the Hospital, and continued to provide ongoing financial support for Senior Safety, the YMCA, DARC, and Transport de Clare.
His commitment to the future of the Digby community has included, the DAHSCF committing funds for Scholarships for Medical Professionals, financing the apartment to house visiting Medical Professionals and has started the process to potentially hire a Community Navigator!
