Shout Outs

Congratulations to Jamie Chalmers and her husband Mitchell on tying the knot!

Heart Attack Day 2019! Despite weather that predisposed to heart attacks (via snow shovelling) and the need for some ingenious networking that digitally brought together panelists stranded by the storm, the annual Heart Attack Day was an unmitigated success. Special congrats to Lorraine Avery and John Ducas for making it possible.
