The AGM will run until 1:00pm and immediately after we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the opening stage of “The Gallery of Memories.” This project has been spearheaded by the Capacity Building Committee Co-chairs and will support the collecting of stories, art, and experiences of Public Health Professionals working under colliding pandemics. We are excited to welcome the following storytellers as they talk about the impact that COVID-19 has had on their professional and personal lives:

We encourage you to stay and listen to their experiences, this is meant to be the start of an engaging project to celebrate public health professionals across the province. Maybe we will tell your story next!
