This town hall is a stop on a tour of Nunavut by CMA President Dr. John Haggie and President-elect Dr. Anna Reid. The two physicians will meet with various community leaders and health professionals in Cambridge Bay and Iqaluit. “We are really looking forward to this visit,” Dr. Haggie said. “Nunavut residents face enormous challenges in trying to be healthy and their views will help direct us in our efforts to create a health care system that truly serves all Canadians.”
