Community Advocacy

3rd Annual Patient Healthcare Forum
April 18, 2019


Moderated by LDAM President Dr. Sharad Rai, the theme of the 3rd Annual London & District Academy of Medicine Patient Healthcare Forum was patient solutions for hallway medicine with a primary care focus. Five patient speakers presented a variety of ideas to help alleviate the current crisis dubbed hallway healthcare by government officials. The audience also heard from members of government and other stakeholders including the Honourable Jeff Yurek, Minister of Transportation and MPP Elgin-Midddlesex-London; Peggy Sattler, MPP London West; Peter Rozeluk, Executive Director for Mission Services of London; and Betty Jo Drent of West Elgin Community Health Centre. The evening closed with questions posed to the MPPs in attendance. See our Advocacy page for complete video coverage of the event.
