Health Journalist Avis Favaro to Emcee e-Health 2024

e-Health 2024 is pleased to announce Canada’s longest-serving television Medical Correspondent Avis Favaro as e-Health 2024 Emcee. Avis specializes in health stories that can make a difference in the lives of Canadians.

Avis Favaro has always had one mission—telling stories that help Canadians. Favaro began as a news writer at Global Television and then discovered a passion for health journalism. In 1992, she was recruited by CTV News and reported on a vast array of important health issues in the three decades since. Since 2022, she has worked as a freelance journalist, contributing stories to W5 and CTV News on the rise of Medically Assisted Death in Canada and the crisis in front-line medicine. She also hosts the “The CHIP” – the English language podcast by the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

She is a proud London, Ontario girl, a graduate of Western University with an honorary PhD from McMaster University, where she served as the first journalist in residence in 2022. She speaks English, Italian, and a bit of French. She is also an enthusiastic grandmother who believes public healthcare is a human right.

Avis will open the conference and introduce the Opening Keynote session presented by Dr. Kathleen Ross, MD MSc MCFP. President, Canadian Medical Association.
