Celebrating National Physicians’ Day | May 1, 2024

National Physicians’ Day is celebrated annually on May 1st and honors the birthday of Dr. Emily Stowe, the first female physician to practice in Canada. Today we pay special tribute to those who serve in the profession of medicine.

For 2024, we are sharing the work of Drs. Melissa Paquette, Olu Oyedeji, Monica McKay, Laura Swaney, Lara Malks-Jjumba, Vishal Avinashi and Laura Sauvé who proudly serve the children, youth, and families across British Columbia.

Thank you all for your contributions and impact!

We are so excited to share a bit about each of you. Meet some of our physicians that are working tirelessly to make a difference.
