Aberdeen Health Foundation’s Annual General Meeting returns to in-person event

The Aberdeen Health Foundation is pleased to announce the return of the in-person Annual General Meeting, on Thursday, March 23rd at 6:30pm at Summer Street Industries in New Glasgow, with dessert social to follow.

While access to the event will still be available virtually through the Aberdeen Health Foundation website, this will be the first year the event will have an in-person option since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.

This year’s AGM will feature a dedication to Aberdeen Health Foundation founding director and lifelong member Jim Gogan. Jim served the organization from its inception in 1986 to his passing in June 2021 and was the driving force behind the vision to establish an endowment fund – an idea that has created a remarkable legacy for health care in Pictou County.

“It’s a remarkable legacy – it took courage to commit to an endowment that would last for generations to come. As a result, we are in the rare position of not having to ask the community every year to help fund large pieces of equipment,” says Susan MacConnell, current Board Chair. “This strong and stable endowment fund has allowed us to invest in the growing health care needs of our community year after year, for decades, thanks to the incredible commitment, foresight and investment skills of people like Jim.”

To honour Jim and his dedicated service to the Aberdeen Health Foundation, the Medical Equipment Fund will be renamed the Jim Gogan Medical Equipment Endowment as part of this year’s AGM.
