In July and August 2015, I had the priviledge of working as a medical volunteer at the Pan and ParaPan Am Games in Toronto. In the spirit and excitement of a major games the interactions with the athletes are very memorable. Meeting and working with the Pan-American athletes and their support staff was a learning experience as well as building of relationships.
The Francophone games in Nice, France was a fantastic major games event with the multi-disciplinary health care team from Canada. Physiotherapists, medical doctors, massage therapists, athletic therapists and chiropractors came from across Canada covered this event. A combination of cultural and sport competitions the Francophone games are held every 4 years and includes over 40 countries. While major games leave an impression, so do my colleagues in the Ontario soccer association. I gained lasting relationships with the coaches and managers in the OSA after travels to Spain and eastern Canada.

Universite de Quebec-trois Rivieres (UQTR) Liaison: UQTR and the RCCSSC have developed a great working relationship through their chiropractic department and sport program, and in speaking french I am able to facilitate this. My role serves to help continue the communication between their sport department and the RCCSSC. It involves direct communication with the head of graduate studies, knowledge of their short program online courses and attendance at the CCSQ sport conference at UQTR.
Post Grad Residency interview committee: The RCCSSC has a masters-based residency program for practitioners in the field called the Sports Sciences Residency Program (SSRP). Applicants must submit their application package and successfully complete an interview to enter the program. I evaluate the application package and have been on the interview committee since 2013.
