Time: 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Dr. Hassan Masri
Dr. Hassan Masri visited Syria two times as a child. But his third trip to the country, as a second-year medical resident in 2012, was the most memorable. The Saskatoon-based critical care physician snuck into the embattled country through the Turkish border to work a northern field hospital. Find out more about Dr. Masri here.
The evening program will include:
4:30 pm - Members Reception (Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and cash bar)
5:00 pm - Chapter AGM
