Dear Ms. Murphy
There was an indescribable energy in the air as more than 600 delegates came together from around the world for the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research’s Forum 2017, forming the organization’s largest conference to date. As Chair of the Board of CIMVHR, I couldn’t have been more proud.
The following is a guest blog by Queen's Medicine students Melissa Lorenzo (Class of 2018), Katherine Rabicki and Lauren Wilson (Class of 2019).
Last Thursday, I hosted our annual reception to recognize members of our faculty who had recently been promoted. It is always a pleasure to see so many familiar faces and celebrate some important career milestones, but this reception was made even more special by the faculty’s good fortune in naming several new chairs over the last year. That night, it was a thrill for me to introduce Dr. José Pereira as the inaugural Dr. Gillian Gilchrist Chair in Palliative Care Research to our community for the first time.
One of the great joys of these last eight years as dean has been working alongside one of Canada’s most well-known and talented scientists, Dr. Roger Deeley. Roger’s successes are many, but importantly, a very major one just opened its doors this morning – the W. J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research.
