Recap: MacGlObAS Joint Grand Rounds
This year, MacGlObAS virtually hosted Dr. Dylan Bould for its annual Joint Grand Rounds. Dylan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, and the Department of Innovation in Medical Education at the University of Ottawa. During his talk “Partnerships to develop capacity for Global Surgery and Anesthesia”, Dylan encouraged participants to hold on to the shock of the current crisis of COVID-19 across the globe and not let it be forgotten as increased vaccinations help to ease COVID-19’s effect on life in Global North countries.
