Dr. Sandra Allison



In November of 2020, Dr. Sandra Allison joined Island Health’s team of Medical Health Officers and in her role she works alongside Dr. Michael Benusic serving the communities of Nanaimo, Oceanside, and Alberni-Clayoquot.  Dr. Allison is an accomplished public health and preventive medicine specialist and a community-centered physician, who has been at the forefront in Island Health’s effort to end the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We’re thrilled to share a special acknowledgment Dr. Allison received from the Superintendent of Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools.

“Thank you to all of the Vancouver Island Medical Health Officers for their guidance and support. A special thank you to Dr. Sandra Allison, Central Vancouver Island Region Medical Health Officer, who was unbelievably generous with her time leading Town Hall meetings and information sessions, as well as attending a number of school staff meetings. Her enduring commitment and unwavering support to the students and staff of NLPS will not be forgotten.”
