It’s that time of the year when we hope Spring is on its way! We now are able to confirm that CHLNet’s By Leaders, For Leaders leadership dialogue reception will be on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 with Michael B. Decter, a Harvard trained economist and President and Chief Executive Officer of LDIC Inc. Michael previously served as Deputy Minister of Health for Ontario and Cabinet Secretary in Manitoba. He is a well-recognized expert on health care policy and was the founding Chair of the Health Council of Canada. He continues to serve as the Chair of Medavie Inc. and Patients Canada. In 2004, Michael was awarded The Order of Canada. In 2018, Michael was appointed to the Premiers Council on Improving Medicare and Ending Hallway Medicine. The focus will be on his own leadership journey and health care policy, centering around Michael’s most recent experience with the Premier’s Health Council as well as his ongoing work as chair of Patients Canada. This conversation will also highlight key lessons learned from his life-long leadership journey and will be moderated by Kathy MacNeil, CEO of Island Health and one of CHLNet’s Cochairs.
The letter of invitation can be found here with more registration details including that it will be held at the Ottawa Art Gallery (Alma Duncan Salon), 50 Mackenzie King Bridge, Ottawa from 5pm to 8:00pm. And as always we encourage you to bring emerging health leaders with you to the reception.
