As Director of Global Health, Yotakahron supports her incredible team of National Officers and team members in the various areas of the GH Portfolio. One of the main areas of focus for the Portfolio this year is to implement recommendations on Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity that have been put forth by our EDI Task Force at the 2020 Online AGM. We want to ensure that the CFMS is representative of our membership, responsive to the needs of our membership, and ensuring for an inclusive environment for all.
