Message from the Chair

Dr. David Tannenbaum, Interim Chair 

Over the last month, we’ve seen the pandemic’s third wave sweep across Toronto, Ontario and much of Canada. Pressures we had hoped might subside are intensified, and many physicians are under unprecedented strain. With variants spreading fast and causing greater illness in younger populations I encourage you to remain vigilant. Advocacy from many DFCM faculty is helping protect those at highest risk of infection and severe disease, but we have a long way to go.
