Thank you for taking the time to consider my nomination to represent you as an Anesthesia section delegate. This year I will be the Vice-Chair of our section and will continue to work closely with the new section Chair and rest of the Executive to represent your best interests. These are important and challenging times for our profession and we will continue to keep a close pulse on what is happening and ensure Anesthesia’s voice is well represented.
I am committed to advocating for all physicians. I am currently Vice-President of the Professional/Medical Staff Association at Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga and an active District 5 Delegate. I am vocal on social media and have met with several politicians to share the important role physicians, and the unique role Anesthesia plays in the health care system.
Within our section I have been an active member of our Beyond the Mask campaign and in 2017, a member of an Advisory Group that helped develop a Choosing Wisely Implementation Guide to decrease unnecessary pre-operative testing, leading to better patient care and decreased system costs. Over the past year, we have been working to forge ties with key stakeholders in healthcare and promote the vital role Anesthesiologists play across the healthcare system.
I would like your support to continue to build a strong and respected section. Through our section I would like to continue to help hold the OMA Board and CEO accountable and support the OMA in becoming more strategic and tactful. Collectively we have made big changes at the OMA in the last few years, but there is more work to do!
As a member of the section Executive, I think it will be important to represent our section as a delegate. In this way the Executive voice is represented with an ability to vote at Council.
Let’s continue to grow our strong reputation as Anesthesiologists. Your voice matters, so please vote by clicking here.
