An Ethical and Legal Commentary on Out-of-Country Medical Care

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 12, 2007) - Ombudsman of Ontario Andre Marin will speak about his Office's investigation into the case of cancer patient Suzanne Aucoin.

Mr. Marin's presentation is part of a panel discussion organized by the Munk Centre for International Studies at the University of Toronto. The panel session on the topic of Canadians obtaining out-of-country health care will consist of four other presenters including Suzanne Aucoin herself.
