About our guest
Simon Colgan is a palliative physician in Calgary and a member of the O’Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary. He divides his time between inpatient and community practice and, in 2016, helped to found the Calgary Allied Mobile Palliative Program (CAMPP) with Rachael Edwards of Calgary Urban Project Society (CUPS). CAMPP was established in response to the inequity experienced by homeless and vulnerably housed patients at end of life. Previously, Simon worked with Doctors Without Borders in Afghanistan and Doctors of Two Worlds on a trip to Nepal.
