Kerstin de Wit
Dr. Alix Carter is the Medical Director of Research at EHS Nova Scotia and Director, Division of EMS at Dalhousie University. Her research interests revolve around exploring models of delivery to improve emergency health services from the perspective of provider, patient and system. Her primary program of research is around design, implementation, and evaluation of the Paramedics and Palliative Care program. She loves her family and the great outdoors, at the same time if possible.
Dr. Kerstin de Wit is trained in internal medicine, emergency medicine and research in the UK. She completed a Thrombosis Fellowship in Ottawa in 2013. Since then, she has worked in both emergency medicine and thrombosis. She leads a research program which focuses on the diagnosis of bleeding and clotting disorders in the emergency department, and is funded by CIHR and PSI.
My Farewell to Emergency Medicine: A Journey
After practicing emergency medicine for over 20 years as staff at St Paul's Emergency, Dr Mangal suffered a large stroke, leaving him unable to walk and with left sided neglect. This lecture is a tribute to a career in emergency medicine and describes the journey which led him to this point.
Dr. Sunil Mangal
Dr Sunil Mangal was born in Kenya but grew up in Alberta. He graduated from University of Alberta Medical School in 1994 and went on to complete his residency in Family Medicine at Dalhousie University in 1998. Throughout his career, Dr Mangal’s practice focused on Emergency medicine and he worked in many hospitals across Canada from coast to coast- from Prince Edward Island to Tofino, British Columbia. Ultimately, he learned to call Vancouver his home and St. Paul’s Emergency Department became his second family. In 2009, he took on the role of the “Scheduler” for both St. Paul’s and Mount St. Joseph’s Emergency Department- a role which Dr Mangal held until this year. Lastly, an important piece of trivia, Dr Mangal is one of the inventors of the Banana Guard and appeared on Dragon’s Den with two fellow colleagues and long time friends, Dr Amin Sajan and Dr David Agulnik.
