Halton physicians need the HPA to play an integrative role for community and hospital-based physicians, and act as an organizing body for collaborative ventures and initiatives that will serve to improve:

  • Physician representation and advocacy for effective and equitable healthcare services.
  • Communications both between physicians and interprofessional.
  • Access to resources for physicians and their patients.
  • Input regarding strategic planning.
  • Advocacy for patients.
  • Co-ordination of healthcare services.
  • Development and support of communities of practice.

I see the Halton Physician Association as an amplifier of our individual voices in shaping up the future of healthcare in Halton and at the same time a support for our individual needs.

OAKVILLE REPRESENTATIVE
Oakville, Family Medicine
I have been practicing in Oakville for close to 30 years and have recently been involved in building the Connected Care Halton OHT and bringing programs like SCOPE to our community. A strong physicians' association is essential to advocate for Halton physicians, to strengthen our physician community and represent our interests. Physicians have an opportunity to lead the way changes are made within Halton and the HPA is a critical player in this. As an Oakville representative to the HPA I will continue to represent our medical community in order to make changes that will improve the lives of physicians and of our patients.

GEORGETOWN REPRESENTATIVE
Georgetown, Family Medicine - Anesthesia
I've been practicing full scope family medicine and anesthesia in Ontario for about 15 years. Initially, I did locums in Moose Factory, Cochrane, Pembroke, Markham and other areas in Ontario. However, Georgetown became home because of the amazing physicians who work here, the supportive local healthcare system and the beautiful community. I have worn a number of leadership hats over the years, including being a past board director and president of the Ontario Medical Association as well as the co-chair of the Collaborative Association for Family Practice/ GP Anesthesia. My focus is on helping local physicians by being the Primary Care Lead for the Halton SCOPE program. I teach at the University of Toronto's DFCM and the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation. Recently, I was appointed to the role of the U of T/ NOSM Faculty Lead for Anesthesia Health Human Resources Planning. I also volunteer with the Toronto TIDE program to present on recognizing and managing unconscious/ implicit bias. My favourite job, however, is being a mom of four young kids.

MEMBER AT LARGE
Oakville, Family Medicine
I have been practicing Family Medicine in the Oakville community and at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital for the past 16 years. Being involved with both the legacy Mississauga Halton LHIN and CCH OHT, it is clear to me that we need a strong local physician advocacy group to help with the reorganization of Ontario Health so that we optimize the needs of our patients, the efficiency of the healthcare system, the cost of our system as well as the needs of all service providers. Additionally, a strong Halton Physician Association will facilitate physician CME, collaboration and support for one another.

Please Note: Elections for a Milton Representative, CCH-OHT delegrate from Milton, and a 'Member at Large' will occur in the coming weeks.
