What is Radio NAHO? Radio NAHO is a six-part radio series on First Nations health created by the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO).
Each episode focuses on health issues from a holistic perspective, with an emphasis on prevention.
Radio NAHO shares information and wisdom from well-known and inspiring First Nations leaders, artists, academics and athletes who will be focusing on six themes: traditional living, healthy living, youth, environmental health, children’s health and diabetes prevention. From hip hop to clean drinking water, from boxing to sexual health to child development resources - Radio NAHO finds a multitude of ways to talk about First Nations health.
Lisa Abel is the host of each episode of Radio NAHO. She is a member of the Anishinabek Nation and a graduate of the joint Journalism program at the University of Ottawa and Algonquin College. Lisa has worked and volunteered as a reporter, editor and videographer. She also hosted her own Aboriginal-themed radio program, The Circle, on Ottawa community radio station CHUO 89.1FM.
