Doctor recruitment packages making the rounds throughout Canada

The packages have been sent to various Continuing Medical Education conventions throughout Canada.

Dierra Maynard and Robin Lowe-Irwin have created Doctor Recruitment Packages containing detailed information about the activities and services available in Princeton and outlying communities to aid in the hopeful recruitment of doctors. The packages have been sent to various Continuing Medical Education conventions throughout Canada.

Two entrepreneurial and energetic women were retained by the directors of the Save our Similkameen Association (SOS) to create what is known as “Doctor Recruitment Packages.”

Dierra Maynard and Robin Lowe-Irwin are well known throughout the community and have showcased their talents and abilities as well as their dedication to the community numerous times through participation in and promotion of Princeton’s events as well as joining in problem solving tasks  for  Princeton issues.

“They are perfect candidates for the job,” said SOS director Darrell Dobie, “They know the community very well.”

Maynard and Lowe-Irwin have spent a great deal of time putting these packages together. The packages include detailed information about the activities and services available in Princeton and outlying communities. Businesses have included gift certificates as well.

Along with the “Experience, Live, Adventure, Explore and Relax” folder, the recruitment pack also contains  the 10 minute film on Princeton and areas that was produced by Red Rock Productions and shown during the Alex Atamenenko MP Forum held earlier this month.

“Anyone who is working on the doctor issue is happy with the packages,” said Dobie, “The ladies have done a stellar job.”

The packages are being and have been sent to various Continuing Medical Education conventions throughout Canada.

“We are generating interest from Toronto and Vancouver so far, said Dobie, “If we can get a couple more doctors, we can open the E.R. and then we can just go home.”
