The Prince George Hindu Cultural Society has provided a donation of $8,574.97 to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation to be directed to educational tools through the Northern Clinical Simulation Centre at UHNBC. Always a strong supporter of education in the north, the Prince George Hindu Cultural Society is folding and understanding that healthcare touches everyone, they felt the balance of their remaining funds would be a nice closing gift to train healthcare professionals in the north.
“We sincerely appreciate the direction that Mr. Sharma and the Prince George Hindu Cultural Society has chosen in leaving a lasting gift.” Said Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “Their passion for healthcare and education has made this donation a wonderful fit within the great work that the Northern Clinical Simulation Centre does in training healthcare professionals with state of the art equipment. As one door closes another opens and we are so proud to be a part of finalizing this chapter for such a wonderful society.”

Other founding members were Brig Madhok, Paul Gupa, Dr. Umesh Khare and Inder Thakur.
Clinical Simulation is a valuable learning tool for physicians, students and clinical staff as well as first responders throughout the North. Clinical simulation is defined as “an attempt to replicate some or nearly all of the essential aspects of a clinical situation so that the situation may be more readily understood and managed when it occurs for real in clinical practice.”
