The Huron County Health Unit no longer has a Medical Officer of Health.

Health Board Chair Tyler Hessel announced this morning the board has parted ways with Acting Medical Officer of Health Doctor Jan Owen. Owen was hired just over one year ago to replace Doctor Nancy Cameron.

Hessel says all of the programs run by the Health Unit will continue, and Perth County Medical Officer of Health Doctor Miriam Klassen has offered her assistance until there is a new Medical Officer of Health for Huron.
