The Governor General hosted a conversation entitled "Women's Health and Well-Being in the Era of COVID-19" with Dr. Jan Christilaw, Clinical Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia and Director of Women's Health for the Canadian Network for International Surgery.
Their discussion focused on the direct and indirect impacts that COVID-19 has had on women's health and well-being since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020. Over the course of a career spanning more than four decades, Dr. Christilaw has maintained her commitment to women’s health, and has passionately advocated for better access to the tools and resources women need to achieve optimal health, whether they live in British Columbia or in the most remote parts of the world.
This virtual event was organized as part of the innovative GGconversations series that highlights outstanding Canadians in a variety of areas of interest.
