Dr. James Makokis has been featured in children's book

Tansi All,

PLEASE PASS ON & share....

Dr. James Makokis has been featured in a children's book from the NAHO organization on the promotion of Indigenous health & wellness.  Excellent resource on science, well-being etc.  Please download, save, promote, and use.  It's unfortunate this amazing organization's funding has been cut from the federal budget as so many much needed Indigenous organizations have also been forced to close.  NAHO will be done as of the end of this month due to this funding loss; therefore, I encourage you access as much information from this website as soon as possible.  Sad days for Successful Indigenous Organizations but this is usual standard for the Canadian Government, once an Indigenous Organization shows promise ~ CUT FUNDING....hmmmm sorry, I am quite annoyed by this!  Maybe those of influence can help change this trend.

Media Release: 

The National Aboriginal Health Organization's (NAHO) funding has been cut by Health Canada. It is with sadness that NAHO will wind down by June 30, 2012.

Take Care and from the Desk of,
