Kiwanis Medical Foundation / Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Discovery Day

Wednesday 12:00 at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club

Join us for the launch of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa Medical Foundation/Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Discovery Day in Health Sciences, an event which will be taking place at the University of Ottawa on May 31, 2019.   Although this event has been held in universities across Canada for over 15 years, it will be the first Discovery Day to be held in Ottawa. We are thus very excited to be a part of this inaugural event.

Keynote address from Lissa Foster, Executive Director of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, who will describe the impressive scope and history of the Discovery Day program.  Also joining us will be Dr. Paul Bragg, Vice-Dean, University of Ottawa, who will share the University’s perspective on the upcoming Ottawa Discovery Day. We will also be paying tribute to Kiwanis member Dr. Wilbert Keon, who died recently. He played a key role in the negotiations between the Kiwanis Medical Foundation, the University of Ottawa and the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame to bring the Discovery Days event to Ottawa. Dr. Keon is also a laureate of the Hall.
