The Heart of It

The Heart of It

The Heart of It informs, educates and inspires anyone interested in learning about health care. In each episode, host Dr. Victoria Lee invites guests take us to a part of – and the heart of – health care, where passion, dedication and innovation drive individual, community and planetary health. Through personal stories, guests share what drives them, why they love what they do, what is the impact they see, and how they knew that health care was their calling. The Heart of It is recorded on the traditional, ancestral and unceded shared territories of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Coquitlam, Semiahmoo and Tsawwassen First Nations, and the home of the Surrey-Delta Métis Association.
