Welcome to Quebec City
Dr. Laurent Marcoux
President-Elect, Canadian Medical Association
Dr. Yun Jen
President, Quebec Medical Association
Dear members, as President-Elect of the Canadian Medical Association and Past President of the Québec Medical Association, I’m pleased to invite you to the CMA’s 150th Annual Meeting and General Council, taking place in Quebec City from Aug. 20-23, 2017.
This year’s meeting in Quebec City will be a special one, as we return to the city where the CMA was created. On Oct. 9, 1867, 164 physicians met in the Grand Hall of Laval University, electing Sir Charles Tupper as the first president of the newly created association.
We’re honoured to be hosting General Council in this special year and we look forward to hearing your reflections on our history as well as your priorities for health care in Canada, now and in the future. What better occasion than our annual meeting to celebrate the many ways we’ve strengthened the health and health care of Canadians, and to ask ourselves “what will our next 150 years look like”?
We sincerely hope you’ll join us and we look forward to welcoming you to Quebec City.
The CMA sincerely thanks MD Financial Management for their contributions to the CMA Annual Meeting this year.
