President, CEO and Chair of a New Vision of Aging, Moses Znaimer, has announced Wanda Morris is the new Vice-President of Advocacy.
Wanda, who replaces Susan Eng, comes to CARP from Dying With Dignity Canada, where as CEO, she led a strategic campaign for legislative change leading up to the Supreme Court of Canada decision on the issue of doctor-assisted death.
Moses says ”I am confident that Wanda will apply all of her expertise and experience for the benefit of CARP and our 300,000 members Canada-wide.”
Wanda Morris stopped by Zoomer Radio studios to discuss how she’ll use her experience to help the group and its 300-thousand members.
”I’ve had a lot of deep experience with the Dying With Dignity campaign and legalizing physician-assisted dying. It’s also made me aware of the breadth of issues we have in health. So I’d like to take some of the campaigning experience I have and use that to apply to a broader range of health issues. I’m also an accountant by training, so CARP is a real supporter of financial reform, pension reform, investor protection. I’m excited to use those parts of my skill set and help advocate there as well.”
