About this Event

The podcast ensures that the tenets of Vernissage Health, a unique leadership development initiative, is available to all IHPME students. It offers an opportunity to engage diverse, established health care leaders who share their experiences and provide IHPME students and other emerging leaders with insights and wisdom gleaned from their health care leadership journey.

We are excited to launch the podcast with a live webinar featuring two special guests: Matt Anderson, President and CEO of Ontario Health, and Camille Orridge, Senior Fellow at the Wellesley Institute.

The webinar is free and will explore leadership concepts and how they relate to current health system issues like the pandemic, BIPOC racism and system restructuring. A Q&A will follow. Please register to participate.
