Yesterday was a very thrilling day. I had the pleasure of attending the First Annual Symposium on Patient Centered Care. It was held in Toronto at One King West and was a very exciting day with many medical professionals talking about the importance of patient centered care and how we can have patients more at the forefront of the concerns of healthcare. It filled me with so much hope and excitement to be in the room with so many highly qualified and committed people. The event was organized by very good friends of mine Donna Sherman and Jane Hollett. I was absolutely honored to speak on a panel with Nadine Cross, Gail Mitchell and Dante Morra. As a cancer survivor it is thrilling to see people make the effort to make the health care system more open to the concerns of patients.
I am honored to be a “positive shit disturber” in the system with such fine people.
