Emerging Health Leaders (EHL) is a network developed for new health professionals, by new health professionals. EHL is dedicated to supporting the development of emerging health leaders through opportunities for knowledge exchange, educational events, mentoring relationships and informed health care and related discussions. There are 8 nodes across Canada, including EHL-Nova Scotia which was established in 2014.
The EHL-NS executive is made up of seven emerging health leaders who are mentored by seven senior leaders in Nova Scotia’s health system. Our Executive, Advisory Council and membership span the continuum of health and health services in the province (e.g. DHAs, continuing care, students, researchers and health care providers, etc.).
