“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”
- Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
I am listening. While I have had the privilege to connect with many of you already, I hope to meet with many more over the coming months. A great opportunity to listen and be heard is at our Departmental Assembly on November 8. Our talented team is working hard to prepare an event to excite, inspire and encourage you to actively participate in our Department's vision and direction. Please join us. All residents, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend, and your input is necessary to our success. If you're away or unavailable, please connect with me to meet - you can even check out our new Chair's Room, decorated with artwork created by DFM staff and my Research Team!
I am also thrilled to announce that Kim Rozon has been selected as the 2019 Recipient of the Faculty of Medicine Outstanding Service Award for Support Staff . Congratulations, Kim! She will be presented with her award at the Faculty Gala on October 5, and will be cheered on by a large contingent from Family Medicine!
