Doctor and Family Find Home in BC

November 29, 2016

Dr. Bbandama Makwati took a very unique route to arrive at the medical clinic in Castlegar, British Columbia (BC): from Zambia, to China, the USA, and South Africa before settling in Castlegar. One might ask, of all the choices available to his family, why did Castlegar top the list?

"My family is the most important thing to me," said Dr. Makwati. "We love nature and we wanted a place that had lots of opportunities for the whole family. We looked at many places but when we thought about Castlegar, my wife and I both had the same feeling: Castlegar feels like home. And for my career, I was looking for a place where I could do both general practice and emergency medicine that had lots of continuing professional development opportunities – Castlegar has it all."
