CKHA board names new chair

Deb Crawford

Deb Crawford has been named the chair of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance board.

The move took place June 22 at the board’s annual meeting.

Crawford takes on the role after Alan Wildeman completed his two-year term. She joined the board in January of 2022.

“I am honoured to have been selected as the next board chair for CKHA and look forward to working with the board and administration to support the delivery of high-quality local health care,” Crawford said in a media release. “I also want to take this opportunity to thank Alan Wildeman for his leadership and dedication to serving as CKHA’s board chair these past two years.”

Crawford was born and raised in Toronto and moved to Chatham-Kent in 2001. She retired as director of education for the St. Clair Catholic District School Board in 2021 after serving as a teacher, vice principal, principal, superintendent, and director of the board.

During the annual meeting, the board of directors also welcomed Russ Weir as a new volunteer board member.

Weir is a resident of Pain Court. He graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics. He is a CPA, CA.
