The Brant County Health Unit will be searching for a new medical officer of health.
Dr. Malcolm Locke announced at yesterday’s meeting that he will be retiring at the end of September.
During his 16 years as MOH, the board of health says Dr. Lock has led the organization through many important issues and events including responding to new and emerging infectious diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS; providing timely direction on environmental health concerns such as the 2018 Brantford flood; and reducing the spread of infectious diseases through the management of our travel clinic.
CEO Dr. JoAnn Tober says while Dr. Lock will be missed, the board will ensure there is no disruption to services while they transition to new leadership.
