Description

Join your colleagues from around New Brunswick for two days of practical sessions dedicated to the health and well-being of physicians.

- André Picard, a veteran health columnist for the Globe and Mail and one of Canada’s top health and public policy observers and commentators, will present on How Healthy Systems Work.

Three breakout sessions are also planned

- Dr. Shiona McIntosh, a family doctor with a passion for wellness and prevention, will present How to Meditate — the Practical Aspects of Beginning & Sustaining a Meditation Practice.
