Your colleagues make a difference
We recently profiled two AMA members in Alberta Doctors' Digest for our Shine A Light initiative:
A somewhat reluctant nominee for the AMA’s Shine A Light program, Dr. Francesco Mosaico’s main desire is that “the light be shone upon” the comprehensive health care provided by the entire staff of Boyle McCauley Health Centre to their valued patients, made up largely of marginalized populations.
A wearer of many lab coats, Dr. Remo Panaccione is a gastroenterologist at the Foothills Medical Centre; a Professor of Medicine at the University of Calgary; Director of the U of C’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic; Director of GI Research; and Director of Admissions, Cumming School of Medicine.
