Today is International Women’s Day 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the work of the current women BOD members and women members of the general CSAM membership and the contribution they have made to addiction medicine in Canada. Most notably, I would like to recognize Dr. Melanie Willows, CSAM’s first woman President and Dr. Jennifer Brasch, CSAM’s first woman President-Elect. I am proud to be working with women of their ability and character and have certain confidence that CSAM will thrive under their leadership.
Paul W. Sobey MD
Immediate Past President
