Speaking of Health

Our next virtual Speaking of Health lecture "The COVID-19 Pandemic: Past, Present and Future" is scheduled for Tuesday, April 27th from 7 - 8:30 PM.

We are privileged to be hearing from infectious diseases expert and one of Alberta's leading health experts, Dr. Mark Joffe.

Dr. Joffe will be sharing perspective on previous pandemics and societal responses, what the rollout and efficacy of today's vaccines looks like, and what we might expect from a 'post-pandemic' world.


Dr. Joffe currently holds many high-level positions throughout the province in his roles as Vice President with Alberta Health Services; Medical Director for Cancer Care Alberta, Clinical Support Services and Provincial Clinical Excellence; and also as an educator, as Professor of Medicine at the University of Alberta.
He has represented local and national medical communities by serving as President of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Medical Staff Society, two terms as President of the Capital Region Medical Staff Association and two years as President of the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Canada. He served as Senior Medical Director for Infection Prevention and Control for Alberta Health Services from 2009 through 2017.
Dr. Joffe's major interests are in quality and safety in healthcare delivery and the prevention of infectious diseases in both patients and healthcare workers.
