Dr. Joe in Grenada!

Had the pleasure tonight of meeting with McGill graduates who are now studying medicine at St. Georges University in Grenada. Was really, really proud of them! St. Georges students were invited to field questions from a group of advisors and profs from about 17 universities in Canada and the US.
