A Message From Dr. Katharine Smart

Yukon pediatrician & CMA president

message from the president

Health Advocates is proudly presented by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), the national voice of the medical profession. The CMA’s focus is on creating strong and accessible health systems, fostering well-being and diversity in medical culture, and ensuring every person in Canada has equal opportunity to be healthy.

“There are too many people and populations who aren’t given a voice. In our role as health care providers and advocates, we can use our own voice, influence and platforms to bring their stories and experiences forward, and highlight what needs to change. You being a part of Health Advocates helps do just that."
- Dr. Katharine Smart, CMA president
