Dr. Marcia Anderson DeCoteau
Strong Principled Leadership


Dr. Pierre Plourde MD FRCPC

"I am proud to support Marcia in her candidacy seeking the presidency of the CMA.  She has rapidly risen to prominent leadership positions within our health authority and university, and has been an articulate passionate advocate for closing the embarrassing gaps in health that exist in Canada between the privileged and those who are structurally disadvantaged.  In light of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission recommendations calling our health care system to meaningful action toward the goal of achieving equitable care, we need someone like Marcia at the helm of the CMA to help guide us through the difficult but crucial conversations that will need to occur in our health authorities, hospitals, our clinics, our community health centres, and our public health units."
