The teleconference will feature Marian Walsh, Bridgepoint Health CEO, and the keynote speaker for the North East LHIN's Chronic Disease Management and Prevention Forum Oct. 12.
Discussion will be centred on improving patient access to services for people suffering from chronic disease.
Chronic disease is more prevalent in northeastern Ontario than other parts of the province and the North East LHIN is proactively working to encourage collaboration among health care providers, a press release said.
