I have always admired PARO—they work so hard to negotiate our contracts and protect our rights. Post-call days, call stipends, salary, vacation days, these are all extremely important for our physical and mental well-being. In public health, our issues are unique, and our work environment and call look different. It’s important that our issues are recognized (eg., that there are stipends for public health residents working overtime during the pandemic). In my past life as MedSoc president, I learned to advocate for my peers and represent them on various internal councils and to external organizations. I am really looking forward to be representing public health at the PARO council.
