If you have a chronic disease, it’s important that you have a doctor led team who take the time to understand your condition and work with you on an ongoing basis to manage it. Galambila is unique in that your care coordination can be provided by Aboriginal Health Workers and Aboriginal Health Practitioners. Chronic disease management can include health coaching and support, follow up, monitoring and health checks, general health education on lifestyle risk factors and health interventions.
