Carrier Sekani Family Services has recently opened up a clinic in Prince George called ‘Yu Be-yah’ which means Medicine House in Carrier language. The clinic was created to meet the primary care needs of Indigenous peoples living in Prince George who do not have a primary care provider. Yu Be-Yah is staffed by two family nurse practitioners that provide comprehensive clinical care including the diagnosis and management of disease/illness, prescribing medications, ordering/interpreting laboratory/diagnostic tests, and initiating referrals to specialists. If you are living in Prince George and would like to be a patient of the Yu Beh-yah clinic, please come visit us at 987 Fourth Avenue or call 250-564-5414.
