2022 NLMA PRESIDENT'S TOUR

 

This year, the President’s Tour will use a hybrid approach, with a mix of in-person and virtual meetings. As with previous years, meetings will still be offered based on geographic locations so that physicians have an opportunity to share their thoughts and raise any region-specific issues for discussion. 

 

The NLMA President’s Tour provides members throughout the province with an opportunity to:

 

  • Meet their current NLMA President as well as the Executive Director of the Association
  • Receive an update on the implementation of the new MOA
  • Receive an update on the ongoing work to address the crisis in family medicine
  • Receive an update on other important issues and what the Association will be working on in the future
  • Identify their own local questions or concerns
  • Network with colleagues and friends practising in the same area

 

All members are strongly encouraged to attend this annual opportunity to actively participate in the work of the NLMA.

 

Dates and communities are listed below, as well as the four virtual meetings associated with the four regional health authorities (RHAs).
