James Haggerstone is the Regional Manager for Health Information Analysis. Northern Health is responsible for the delivery of health care across Northern British Columbia, including acute care, mental health, public health, addictions, and home and community care services. According to James, "For generations, boys and men seem to have had the determinants of health weighted in their favor. This might lead to the assumption that boys and men also enjoy good health and longevity. However, the opposite is true: the well-being of boys and men is surprisingly poor. During the next year we will be focusing on the health and wellbeing of boys and men in Northern BC because we believe that healthier boys and men will help to build healthier families and communities in Northern BC."
