What are the two most important initiatives that you would like to champion as a member of the 2020-2022 CUHMA Board of Directors?

As a director-at-large, I will continue my work on clinical practice guidelines, incorporating the knowledge and experience obtained across the academic and community settings from a multitude of diverse elective and emergency cases. In addition, I strongly believe in the central role that the CUHMA Annual Scientific Meeting plays in advancing knowledge and collaboration within the field of hyperbaric medicine. Following the disruptive hiatus we experienced over the past year in the context of the pandemic, I plan to redouble my efforts in helping bring back a vibrant and uniquely successful scientific program at the upcoming meetings in Ontario.
