RCCbc is delighted to announce the launch of its new website with a fresh new look and enhanced content, navigation and functionality.
“We set out to create a home for our rural health partners—particularly rural doctors across the province—where they feel they belong and are celebrated and supported,” explains Dr. Danette Dawkin, physician lead for communications at RCCbc. “We also wanted to showcase the incredible strength and resourcefulness of partnerships, which the RCCbc network is built upon, and that contribute so greatly to improving the health of rural people and communities in BC.”
The design of the website incorporates RCCbc’s new visual identity, which reflects the network’s affection for rural British Columbia and its commitment to building and sustaining relationships with rural Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
“A closer look at the design motifs on the site reveals a topographical map of rural British Columbia, as well as First Nations elements, created by Indigenous artist, Evelyn Alec, which are found in RCCbc’s logo,” says Dr. Dawkin.
She adds that people may also notice the curves in the site’s headers and footers.
“These curves are intended to elicit thoughts of rural British Columbia’s mountains, beaches, waves and fields. And, of course, the rounded corners on the images reflect that, at RCCbc, we’re not sharp-edged people.”
In addition to its enhanced design, the website enables users to more easily find information about RCCbc’s rural health initiatives, commitment to Indigenous reconciliation, learning opportunities, rural health research, and events. It also provides a space to showcase feature stories about RCCbc partnerships and rural health initiatives.
“There are so many stories from across BC that demonstrate the exceptional work that rural doctors and other community members are doing everyday to enhance the health of rural British Columbians,” says Dr. Dawkin. “We hope to share these stories, along with other information about RCCbc initiatives to support rural doctors and communities. We welcome everyone to this new site.”
