About - Sharon Martin

Sharon Martin

This fund is named in honour of the late Sharon Martin, the founding Director of Community and Public Involvement for the Vancouver/Richmond Health Board, one of the predecessors of Vancouver Coastal Health.

Sharon believed that communities understand their local issues and have the ability to create collective solutions. Combining her vision with her passionate belief in health promotion, Sharon gave voice and substance to actions to support individuals and communities in taking control of and improving their health through active participation in the design and delivery of health care services.

The Sharon Martin Community Health Fund is a tangible reflection of Sharon’s vision of nurturing healthy communities through community development and public involvement. It stands as an enduring tribute to the legacy of new ideas she gave us.
