  • COMP CWC-IDEAs @ Home: Navigating the healthcare system as a daughter, a mother, and a healthcare worker

CWC-IDEA welcomes you to join our invited speaker, Dr. Young Lee-Bartlett, on July 10 from 1:00-2:00pm ET for a discussion on how our working environment deals with caregivers and how our healthcare system is able to deal with diversity and providing equitable care.

Pre-register here, and don’t miss the chance to participate in this conversation in a welcoming space.

  • International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP) is approaching, and we want to celebrate with the COMP community through a photo contest! The theme of IDMP this year is “Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.”  We would love to see your interpretation through a photo and accompanying caption. Some ideas include (but are not limited to!):

-         A photo honouring a mentor or colleague that has lifted you up.

-         A defining moment in your career or educational journey.

-         A community that helped or supported you.

To submit your entry, post to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #COMP-IDMP2023 or email the photo and caption to sarah@comp-ocpm.ca. Twitter entries should also tag the COMP account @medphysCA. Note that your submission will not be visible if your social media account is private.

The winning entry selected by the COMP Communications Committee will receive $250 in Curie cash for use towards COMP membership or conference fees. Entries are due November 1, 2023. Creativity welcome!
