MP Colin Carrie Speaks on Hemochromatosis

Posted May 21st, 2017 by Administrator

Over 30 MPs, Senators and Parliamentary officials were our guests at the hemochromatosis Parliamentary reception on May 17, co-hosted by Senator David Wells. MP Colin Carrie rose in the House of Commons earlier that day to recognize the work of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society and the importance of promoting awareness of hemochromatosis, while Senator David Wells did likewise in the Senate. Several MPs went on to inform their constituents about hemochromatosis using social and conventional media. Canadian Blood Services’ Medical Director of Donor and Clinical Services, Dr. Mindy Goldman, was also present to help promote the partnership between our two organizations.

Thank you to the MPs and Senators or their representatives who attended the evening reception:
