Partner & Family Programming at R&R 2019

Sessions targeted to Partners

Pride and Peril: The Life of a Rural Spouse

Laura Soles

Thursday April 4th, 2:40 - 3:40 pm

An interactive, engaging session that will provide the opportunity to share and learn!



Rural Family Support Network, Working Group

Fraser Turner, Stephanie Welton, Laura Soles, Patti Kemp

Friday April 5th, 10:20 am - 12:30 pm

We continue towards developing a nationwide support network for families and partners of rural physicians, building on the information we gathered in St. John’s last year. Together during this session, we will begin to create the infrastructure we can use to connect throughout the year.  Partners are particularly encouraged to attend; everyone is welcome to join and share their perspectives.

Sessions of General Interest

What is Real? How the History & Personalities of Quantum Mechanics Affect our Understanding of Reality

Fraser Turner

Thursday April 4th, 1:30-2:30pm

The first half of this talk will be an overview of Quantum Mechanics and why it's so difficult to interpret its results (much like the Quantum Consciousness talk at Rural and Remote 2018). The latter half will explore different interpretations of Quantum Mechanics and how personalities, politics, and historical events have impacted the debate over which of these provide a better picture of "Reality."



SRPC Reads


Patti Kemp

Friday April 5th, 1:30-2:30pm

Join us for the inaugural meeting of the SRPC Book Club! We only meet once a year, but like every good book club, we’ll talk about books and enjoy good fellowship. This year, we will discuss books from CBC’s Canada Reads. Read one, read none or read them all – it doesn’t matter! Come out for a lively and engaging chat about books, Canada Reads and Canada’s literary landscape.



Trading Places:

Immigration & Human Rights Law


Patti Kemp

Saturday April 6th, 10:20-11:20am

Join Patti Kemp, a qualified lawyer in England and Canada, as she talks about her experiences working in immigration and human rights law in the UK, the history of immigration in Canada and the relationship between domestic immigration laws and international human rights instruments. Her talk will be of interest to anyone who would like to gain a greater understanding of refugee and humanitarian immigration or for those who seek a better understanding of refugee or vulnerable immigrant patients.

SRPC Partner & Family Room

We have designated this room as a home base for partners and families to gather throughout R&R. There will be activities and snacks available, and we will post information on the daily program specific to partners. This is a comfortable and private space.

The Partner & Family Room is located on the convention level, off the exhibitors hall - look for the balloons!
