Physician on a Mission 2.0


After the success of our Physician on a Mission: Covid-19 Edition public awareness campaign, our Division was selected as the grand prize winner of the Public Health Agency of Canada Vaccine Community Innovation Challenge. Family Physicians in our community were excited to have a second opportunity to create a public education video series to further their reach and share their message with patients beyond their office. Physicians came forward with ideas for videos about HPV, preventative health, common myths/facts around primary care, and, the issue of verbal abuse towards doctors and the need to show the public that doctors are people too. We couldn't pick just 1 idea, so we made a video series to address these various important topics. Check them out below!
