Featured Speaker:
Dr. Eric Cadesky
, MDCM, CCFP, FCFP., President, Doctors of BC

Dr. Eric Cadesky has always found meaning in serving and helping others, though it wasn’t until an undergraduate research internship at the Hospital for Sick Children that he saw first-hand how rewarding a life in medicine could be. After completing his medical studies at McGill University in Montreal, Dr. Cadesky packed his suitcase and booked a one-way ticket to Vancouver – where twelve years later he continues to practice family medicine, something he really enjoys. Dr. Cadesky stepped into the role of President in June 2018 after holding executive board positions such as Chair of the General Assembly and Honorary Secretary Treasurer. Dr. Cadesky is focused on creating spaces for respectful dialogue and celebrating diversity, going beyond partisan views and focusing on commonalities to bring the profession to a stronger place of trust in our society.
