MUSE Welcomes New Education Committee Members


The Education Committee recommends educational strategy, including delivery methods and content for MUSE events, webinars, and JAM sessions. It monitors topics of importance and interest from multiple sources and recommends them for inclusion in MUSE education programs. To continue to support these important objectives, we have added five talented volunteers to the committee.


Please join the MUSE Board of Directors in welcoming

these new Education Committee members!


Edmond Chiu is a Clinical Informatics Specialist at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, Ontario. His pharmacy background enables a unique lens into the world of community pharmacy and how that may interact with hospital EMR systems. He brings expertise in WebAcute/WebED and physician documentation, as well as order set development processes. Edmond is passionate about coordinating groups of interest and facilitation of discussion, and he often encourage his colleagues to turn to MUSE if they need another perspective.

She values the information she gains as a MEDITECH user from the MUSE organization.
