Labour Day 2022: A Message from HSA President Kane Tse

 

This Labour Day, I wanted to take a few moments to share with you 3 things I’m thinking about as I reflect on our current moment.

First, that I am so deeply grateful for you, each and every HSA member working as a health science or community social services professional. In what has been the most difficult time in decades, you’ve been brave, you’ve endured, and you’ve risen to every challenge that’s come our way.
