    Roadmap for early 2021

    Roadmap for early 2021

    Happy belated New Year! We are back after a brief break and we're really excited to share with you what's to come in the following weeks. We have been working hard on two new projects:

    (1) Residency Reel: we have six new episodes in the Residency Reel series coming your way! Our first episode in this series was a huge success, and the guests we've lined up this year have all been truly fantastic. Stay tuned.
    (2) CMHF Laureates: we've partnered up with the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame again and have had the honour of interviewing several of the CMHF inductees. In this series we get to know the life stories of the laureates, and have the opportunity to highlight their incredible contributions to healthcare and health research. There will be weekly bonus episodes associated with these that focus on the lasting impactings of their work from the perspective of someone who has been affected by their legacy.

    Thanks for tuning in! See you next Thursday.
