Message from the Chair
Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair
In the inaugural University of Toronto Family Medicine Report, one of our department’s new Canada Research Chairs, Dr. Nav Persaud, shares the story of David, a patient who struggled to afford the medication he needed to treat lymphoma. Nav describes how “the stress of his illness, and of being in financial difficulty, eventually reached a tipping point: shortly after completing chemotherapy, David experienced complications with his medication and suffered a heart attack”.
