Keynotes and Program Highlights

Opening Keynote: Danielle Martin

Danelle Martin  

Danielle Martin is a family doctor and national media commentator on the health issues that hit closest to home for many Canadian families. She practices in the Family Practice Health Centre at Women's College Hospital where she is also the Vice-President of Medical Affairs & Health System Solutions.

In 2013, Danielle was named one of the Toronto Star's top "13 People to Watch" – and watch they have. Appearing regularly on CBC's The National, where she unpacks the latest in cancer research to physician assisted dying, Danielle is a strong advocate for removing barriers to care. In 2013, she helped found the WCH Institute for Health Systems Solutions and Virtual Care – a real-world solutions engine dedicated to solving the health gaps in our system.

Known for her debate on the merits of the Canadian vs. American health systems, she continues to defend and define the ways that we can make our healthcare system even more worthy of our immense national pride.
