Canadians take a great deal of pride in their health care system. But the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated many long standing challenges in care, particularly for seniors, under-served populations and those in need of mental health and addictions services.
Matthew Anderson, President and CEO of Ontario Health, will discuss lessons learned during the pandemic and how system recovery can serve as a catalyst for innovation and transformation in order to better connect, coordinate and improve health care for all.
He has received much acclaim for his writing, including being named Canada’s top newspaper columnist at the 2020 National Newspaper Awards.
