Danielle Martin, MD, CCFP, MPP

Dr. Danielle Martin is a force to be reckoned with. In 2013 she was named by the Toronto Star in its list of the “13 People to Watch.” And watch they have: in March 2014, her presentation to a United States Senate Subcommittee about the Canadian health care system brought her international acclaim and has been viewed by nearly 2 million people across the globe. Dr. Martin will join us as our Luncheon Keynote Speaker for the 2016 Corporate State: Toronto Summit.

Dr. Martin is Vice President, Medical Affairs and Health System Solutions at Women’s College Hospital (WCH) and a family physician in the Family Practice Health Centre at WCH. In her work at WCH she is helping to advance its vision for a “hospital designed to keep people out of hospital”, developing and evaluating new models of care that deliver solutions to the most pressing issues facing Canada’s health system.

Dr. Martin is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto, with cross appointments at the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation and the School of Public Policy and Governance. Her focus is on improving health at the system level as well as the individual level. In addition to being an active medical educator, her clinical work has involved remote northern medicine as well as a current focus on maternity care.

Dr. Martin’s policy expertise and passion for equity have made her a national leader in the debate over the future of Canada’s health care system. As an advocate and researcher she is increasingly involved in work relating to national pharmacare and poverty reduction.
