President's Message

Greetings CCMG Friends and Colleagues,

It was fantastic to catch up with so many of you who attended the Annual Meeting in Montreal at the beginning of May.  It was a very successful meeting, with a superb scientific program thanks to the organizing committee as well as a terrific inaugural Fellows Education Day organized by Training and E2P2 committees.   The EM+ management team did a great job with the meeting logistics and the food was amazing.  For those who couldn’t make it, the minutes of the AGM as well as the committee reports are posted on the web site.  Next year’s meeting will be June 10 – 13, 2018, so please hold the dates!  Details will be posted soon. 

A few important things I would like to bring to the attention of the Membership, so please read on…

Message from Charles Scriver

THE CANADIAN COLLEGE OF MEDICAL GENETICISTS:
The F. Clarke Fraser Award for Excellence in Mentorship and Teaching
AWARDED TO CHARLES R. SCRIVER
APRIL 30, 2017


Scriver2 hiresI begin by expressing my thanks to the College for the recognition it is giving, and will be giving, with this newly created Award for Excellence in Mentorship and Teaching. A mentor has someone to mentor and a teacher has a student to teach. The interactions between them are influenced by both the transmitter and the receiver. At this moment, you and I are surrounded by these interactions and examples of excellence. May it always be the case.

This is the right moment to thank you, Clarke Fraser, wherever you are, for the transforming influence you have had on me during our years of working together. You are a great example of the mentor in the teacher; today we are celebrating those qualities.
