Dana Hubler

I was born as a settler in the traditional territory of the Tsimshian people and I am now raising my family on the lands of the K’omoks Nation. As a family physician and as a citizen of this country, I am committed to doing my part to create a kinder and more equitable healthcare system. As a rural family physician, team-based care has always been a matter of survival and a source of joy.  When at play, you can find me growing food or flowers, hiking or whipping up some yummy food for my family.
