Volunteer Spotlight: Anne-Marie Parent

Digital Health Canada volunteers like Anne-Marie Parent are the backbone of our education program. Anne-Marie volunteered as an instructor for the 2024 Health Informatics Winter Lecture Series, delivering content for the Clinical and Health Services session.

Through my volunteer work, I’ve made connections with the Digital Health Canada Team, as well as participants in the winter lectures series that I co-delivered with friends and peers have reached out on LinkedIn where we continue the conversation.

Volunteering with Digital Health Canada allows me to expand my network and connect with others who are trying to have an impact to improve how health data is used in Canada. I also teach part-time in Health Informatics and have learned that it is important to share my stories with others so we can learn on how to leverage digital technologies more effectively.
