Southern Health-Santé Sud Board of Directors April 2016 Meeting Highlights

Sacred Moment:  Ms. Line Leclerc shared thoughts on the following quote by Helen Keller:  "I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.  The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." Success is almost impossible to chart.  No one person can claim recognition. It depends on "an aggregate of tiny pushes of each honest worker". These individuals, those who "do small things with great love" are also the heroes in health care.  

Election of Officers:  Board Vice-Chair:  Ms. Cheryl McKitrick.
