As a passionate advocate for the profession and patients, Dr. Forbes understands the importance of celebrating the remarkable accomplishments of colleagues who have made great contributions to improve the health and lives of patients.

In addition, Dr. Forbes values the ability to serve the CMHF, an organization that focuses on providing opportunities and inspiration for future generations. This area has been a personal interest of hers and she believes there are many opportunities to engage medical students and young colleagues through the work of CMHF.
