Health & Hope Day 2020

Hi everyone,

Today we are more cognizant than ever that we are connected by health, and need hope to meet life’s challenges.

As a healthcare professional, a believer in transformation, a parent, child, leader, athlete (well sort of –I have lycra and a bike), thankfully, I survived a crash that both humbled and amazed me at the goodness of people around me.

I am proud and privileged to work at Health Partners International of Canada – to be associated with the HPIC team, our mission of increasing access to medicine and improving health in vulnerable communities around the world. I am also extremely grateful for our donors (corporate and individual), our Board of Directors, volunteers, and partners in Canada and around the world that support this critical work. Thank you for helping us help others. Here at HPIC, we are grateful to be a center point for so much humanitarian and health systems strengthening activity, connecting different ends of the health continuum, for the betterment of us all.

Now more than ever, we feel compassion and concern, and recognize we are all part of making transformation possible. We are connected by health and can be, connected by hope. Please join me online today in sharing HPIC’s message of health and hope. #connectedbyhealth.

Wishing you good health,

Marcelle McPhaden, President & CEO
