We’re very pleased to welcome our next guest blogger, Dr. Arlene King, the Chief Medical Officer for Ontario.
Dr. King took her position as Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health right in the middle of the H1N1 flu pandemic. Despite relocating to Toronto, finding a place to live, familiarizing herself with the position of leading Ontario’s public health system, managing the first pandemic of the 21st century and planning the largest immunization program in Canadian history—all while facing the scrutiny of the media on a daily basis—she manages to keep a smile. Her dedication to preventing the flu from getting an overwhelming grip on Ontario keeps her schedule full, her phone-ear warm and requires long hours in and out of the office. She tries to balance this enormous task and upheaval as a wife and mother of two young men.
Join us next week for Dr. King’s expert tips and advice on how you and your family can stay healthy this winter.
