 "Dr. Kettner’s breadth of experience in public health, health care and policymaking and his understanding of how these relate to social and economic development, is an excellent match for our MDP. His knowledge of and work with Canada’s Aboriginal and other disadvantaged populations are an important asset for the program", said U of W president Lloyd Axworthy.
