Media Advisory - The New Health Professionals Network presents the 3rd Annual Tommy Douglas Celebration of Medicare Awards

    TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - This week, at a landmark conference co-sponsored
by the Canadian Association of Community Health Centre Associations (CACHCA)
and the Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC), Canada's future
healthcare professionals, the New Health Professional Network (NHPN), will
present its 3rd Annual Tommy Douglas Celebration of Medicare Awards.
    At the conference, over 500 health professionals and policymakers from
across Canada will gather to map out strategies to achieve Tommy Douglas'
original plans for a Second Stage of Medicare. The relevance of Douglas' early
ideas about a Second Stage of Medicare is on the rise as many current health
policy experts now point to the same solutions to make Canadian health care
more timely, accessible and effective. The NHPN is proud to make its Award
presentation at this important event.
