Dr. Mary Fey will be a keynote speaker and instructor at the Western Canada Health Sciences Educators Conference. The May 16th-18th event will take place at the Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parksville, British Columbia. Dr. Fey will kick off the event with a sold-out pre-conference workshop: Gateway to Debriefing With Good Judgment©, the CMS introductory debriefing course. She will then be delivering one of two keynote addresses that will undoubtedly have people “buzzing.” An avid beekeeper, Dr. Fey is excited to use nature’s ultimate team-players to lead a conversation about interprofessional collaboration, because “Great Minds Don’t Always Think Alike.”
