Dr. Vivien Brown is the recently elected President of the Federation of Medical Women of Canada (FMWC)
The Federation of Medical Women in Canada (FMWC) has elected Medisys’ own VP Medical Affairs, Dr. Vivien Brown as President for a one-year term. The election took place at their AGM on September 25th, 2015.
As President of the FMWC, Dr. Brown’s focus will be on increasing the national conversation on issues affecting women’s health by working with the Canadian Cancer Society on a national HPV campaign and advocating for a HPV vaccine program for boys and men, and encouraging women who do not have a regular family doctor to have a PAP test completed. Dr. Brown has been involved in the organization for a number of years, most recently as President of the Toronto branch.
Being the voice of women doctors in Canada, the FMWC provides women physicians with the opportunity to take part in initiatives concerning women’s health at local, national and international levels by developing leadership, education, networking, advocacy, mentoring and strategic alliances.
The FMWC has 17 local branches across Canada and is a national member of the Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA).
