Dr. Penny Moody-Corbett
“I am passionately interested in health research in Canada. NOSM provides an exciting opportunity to work with communities in non-traditional ways. I am looking forward to working with the Northern Ontario communities to determine the types of research that will give us the answers we need to provide better health care, better practice, and better service to rural and remote areas.”
Dr. David Musson
“I look forward to working with individuals and communities across Northern Ontario, including our Francophone and First Nation’s communities as we continue to keep NOSM at the forefront of medical education. A recognition of the importance of patient safety and new technologies, along with a continued commitment to interprofessional learning will be key factors moving forward in the coming years. This is a very exciting time for medical education, and I am thrilled to return to the North and join the outstanding team at NOSM.”
“Over the past ten years, Ben has been an integral part of the campaign to establish a mandatory Call Before You Dig system in Ontario. Starting with his advocacy leadership on the ORCGA Government Relations Committee, and more recently his work with Ontario One Call, Ben has helped shape the development of the new regime and is well placed to continue our efforts to reduce and eliminate underground damages. He brings a combined 15 years’ experience in the utility and government sectors. Over the past ten years he has worked in the utility industry, serving in management roles in municipal relations, strategic planning and damage prevention.
