How did you get here?

I’ve heard a lot about our healthcare system’s problems through the media and during medical school. Through a career in healthcare leadership, I want to be part of the solution and the OpenLab is the perfect venue to learn how this is done. I’m excited to be co-leading a project to promote healthy eating in students, a problem that my peers and I have faced ourselves (http://uhnopenlab.ca/project/univore/). I’ve already learned so much from the energy, enthusiasm, and diversity of the OpenLab and I’m honoured to be part of the team.
