Healthcare & Community Partners

Healthcare and Community Partners

Your Trusted Partner

Health professionals and community partners play an essential role in cancer support through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. At Wellspring, we aim to provide community-based emotional, physical and practical supports, at no charge, for people impacted by cancer. 

Together we can enhance the standard of care for people impacted by cancer.

Some ways we engage with our health network:

Speaking opportunities

Our Speaker Series features highly respected oncologists, researchers and leaders in the cancer and health industry. These sessions also serve as professional development opportunities.

Formal partnerships

Wellspring Alberta has a number of formal partnerships with provincial cancer and health organizations. By increasing coordination and avoiding duplication, we maximize resources and their accessibility for our cancer community.

Member of advisory boards and associations

A trusted partner in the cancer care world, Wellspring Alberta sits on the Alberta Health Services Cancer Provincial Advisory Council.

Health expert involvement

Health experts contribute to our Board and Program Committees.

Community outreach

We do community visits, virtual presentations, provide online training, and attend events to increase awareness and discoverability of cancer support programs and resources available across Alberta.
