As a member of the health committee, she has advised on 18 different reports that impact the lives of Canadians every day, including the report recommending the implementation of a national pharmacare plan, drinking water standards and more.
She has also been an advocate for national pharmacare and she crossed the country to consult with experts and her report “Defeating Diabetes” was presented earlier this year to the Minister of Health.
