I am delighted to announce that Katie White has joined the UBC Faculty of Medicine, taking on the role of Executive Director, Communications, effective November 7, 2016.
As Executive Director, Communications, Katie will join the Dean’s Executive Team and play a key role in supporting the goals and priorities outlined in the Faculty’s new strategic plan, “Building the Future.” She will work with our faculty, staff and partners across the province in developing a communications strategy to foster engagement and inclusivity across the Faculty and with our stakeholders.
