Fall 2018 (Volume 28, Number 3)
News from Manitoba
Update from Dr. Cory Baillie
Drs. Tim McCarthy and Cory Baillie are pleased to welcome
Dr. Ada Man (as of July 2018), Drs. Ceri Richards
and Mai Nguyen (as of November 2018) and Dr. Amber
Cogar (as of January 2019) to their new practices
at the Manitoba Clinic.
Update from Dr. David Robinson
After eight years as Section Head, Dr. David Robinson is
stepping down to pursue other administrative roles in the
Department of Medicine. Everyone was so pleased to see
him go, they bought gifts including a number of very useful
life-hacks. The scotch is gone so I guess I can’t change
my mind. Dr. Christine Peschken is stepping up to provide
her excellent leadership skills to the Section.
After four years as Scientific Director of the Institute
of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA), Dr. Hani
El-Gabalawy has returned full-time to the Section. While
the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) gig was
purportedly half-time he was travelling more than he was
in town. The Section, his lovely wife Alda, and his two new
grandchildren are happy to have him back. Finally, the section
is happy to welcome Dr. Konstantin Jilkine to add to
our clinical ranks.
Update from Dr. Kerstin Gerhold
The big news in these parts is our groundbreaking pain initiative
“Every Child Every Time,” to prevent and relieve pain
in all children throughout the health region. This includes a
collaborative clinic for chronic pain in children and adolescents.
We have a new clinic for patients with systemic autoimmune
and autoinflammatory diseases running in fourth
gear. Overall, our patient numbers have almost doubled
since 2014—and are still growing. Thankfully, we have a
new excellent team of nursing, clerks, physiotherapists and
occupational therapists in our clinic.
