Humanity in Healthcare

The HHC Series is a multi-disciplinary forum for practicing healthcare professionals to share lived experiences through story-telling and facilitated discussion. A diverse group of speakers will be invited to discuss frontline personal stories of triumph, struggle, reflection, sorrow, and joy with the participating audience as a means to create a community of shared vulnerability and connectivity. The series is intended to be inclusive of all practicing healthcare professionals and learners along the training continuum and will actively seek out participation from hospital, community, and regional partners.

Our mission:

Create a space for important conversations to highlight the collective humanity that brings meaning and challenge to our work as healthcare providers.

Promote a shared and inclusive model for continuing professional development within our healthcare setting that prioritizes health of the care team.

Recognize and reflect on the structures of health care systems and academic institutions to build diverse, equitable and inclusive health care teams.

Proud dad, dedicated husband, talented veterinarian, outdoor enthusiast & spinal cord injury patient.

My name is Hugh Wiley and I was born Nov 22nd 1960 in Toronto. In 1979 I went to the University of Guelph to study Veterinary Medicine. I started working at St. Lawrence Veterinary clinic in 1986. I became a partner in 1991 and moved up to our sister clinic The Kingston Veterinary Clinic the same year. On November 3rd 2000, I had a catastrophic fall in Wesport Ontario which rendered me a C5/C6 quadriplegic. I resumed work at the Kingston Vet Clinic in September of 2002 and continued working there until March of 2020. I've been married for 27 years to Kelly Pope Wiley. Kelly and I have two children, Alexandra Mary who is 23 and Jack Murray who is 19. As an avid outdoorsman I spend a lot of my spare time on Wolfe Island enjoying the abundant wildlife and beauty of the Thousand Islands. As a lifelong sport enthusiast I have been lucky to be involved with my children's recreational sport activities, and prior to the pandemic thoroughly enjoyed watching live sporting events.
