I have had the great privilege of working with and learning from Dr Anderson Decoteau in both her role as a Medical Officer of Health as well as her role at the University of Manitoba and I am very happy to endorse her nomination for President-Elect of the CMA. Dr Anderson displays a passion and dedication to her work that is matched only by her intelligence and empathy. Her leadership in the areas of health equity, anti-racism and the determinants of health has led to a great number of achievements in our regional health authority and in the University of Manitoba.
Her balance of clinical medicine and public health/administrative leadership has equipped her with the skills and knowledge necessary to advocate on behalf of the physicians in Canada but also the populations that we serve. Dr Anderson's ability to support her colleagues while also inspiring us to do better and holding us to a high standard is exactly the kind of leadership that would benefit the CMA.
I fully support Dr Anderson in her nomination to be the next President-Elect of the Canadian Medical Association.
