I am pleased to announce that Drs. Louise Nasmith, Christie Newton and Morgan Price have been appointed Interim Co-Heads, Department of Family Practice, effective June 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.
Their appointment follows the leadership of Dr. Martin Dawes, who completes his term as Department Head this month. I wish to recognize and thank Dr. Dawes for his dedication and significant achievements to the Faculty in this role, and I look forward to his future contributions across the University.
In their acting role, Drs. Nasmith, Newton and Price will provide leadership and support across the Department during the search and recruitment process, currently underway. I look forward to working with them to continue moving the Department of Family Practice forward, building on the successes of the last few years.
Please join me in welcoming them to their new appointment.
