The BCCDC Foundation is indebted to its dedicated Board of Directors. This week, we’d like to shine the spotlight on one of our longest serving members, Andrew Hazlewood.
Andrew Hazlewood is the former Assistant Deputy Minister of Population Health and Wellness for the British Columbia Ministry of Health Planning. Mr. Hazlewood began his career in Public Health in 1972 with the Saskatchewan Department of Health. In 1986, he joined the British Columbia Ministry of Health and has held increasingly responsible positions in the public and preventive health field. He was responsible for developing policy frameworks for all health prevention, promotion and protection programs, including specific strategic initiatives targeted towards Women’s and Seniors health issues, Aboriginal Health, HIV/AIDS and Tobacco Issues. Mr. Hazlewood provided direction and leadership on all aspects of British Columbia’s tobacco reduction strategy. Andrew has been serving on the Board of Directors since June 30, 2011.
