Spotlight on the Next Generation

The Spotlight on the Next Generation is a suite of videos that feature what’s new in a key contemporary trial or other important scientific development (new guidelines, new device etc.) and provides early career leaders an opportunity to share their experiences as Black or Indigenous clinicians. They will also discuss and explain disadvantages that non-white patients experience and how their leadership, care and commitment is working to make change. Dr. Andrew Krahn is the chair of the Spotlight on the Next Generation.

You can also listen to the interviews ‘on the go’ by searching Heart to Heart: Canadian Cardiology in the Spotlight on Apple podcasts or Spotify!
