Hello Arts Health Network Ottawa/ Réseau Arts et Santé membership,
I regret to let you know that a personal matter has necessitated that I step down from my position as co-chair of AHNO/RASO. While my tenure was brief, it was fast moving and we managed to get a lot done both in front and behind the scenes.
