Practice PopulationEdit

Chatham has adiverse population. It is the commercial and administrative hub of the region, with much manufacturing and agriculture in and around it. There are large native reserves on Walpole Island and Moraviantown, and there are many migrant workers from Central America and the Carribean. Of these, a number are Mennonite and often speak low-German, rather than English. There are many socio-economic issues that face people, including substance abuse and mental health.


See Chatham main page.


The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance owns a number of houses in which learners can stay. Kitchen facilities are available. Accomodates are on hospital grounds and are ~10 min walk to the clinic.
