Moglove named to board of Island Health

Island Health (formerly VIHA) has named two new directors to sit on their Board of Directors, one of which is Campbell River’s own Claire Moglove.

According to the Island Health release on the assignments, board members for the health authorities in British Columbia are appointed by the provincial government and are chosen for their skills and backgrounds, decision making abilities and interest in capacity building. They generally serve two year terms which can be renewed.

A resident of Campbell River for almost 25 years, Moglove is a retired lawyer who had a private practice that focused on mediation, negotiation and collaborative law.

She is also a two-term City of Campbell River Councillor, serving from 2008 to 2014. During this time, Moglove served on a variety of committees and commissions and was also active with the Union of BC Municipalities. Moglove is also a dedicated volunteer in Campbell River with a particular interest in organizing sporting events. Her appointment will begin Dec. 31.

“We are very pleased to welcome both Starr Winchester (ex-mayor of Courtenay) and Claire Moglove to the Island Health board,” said Health Minister Terry Lake in the release.
