Our guest speakers are interesting and informative University of Ottawa Heart Institute medical professionals, scientists and health practitioners.

Our meetings are informal and during the presentations, guest speakers will indicate if members can ask questions during or after the presentation, speaker’s choice. After the presentation has concluded we have light refreshments, at this time we have a chance to talk with other members and a chance to talk with the guest speaker.
