Season 1, Episode 8,   Mar 31, 2022, 11:57 PM

Dr. Jon Fine began his career as a physician in 1976 stationed in Germany with the British Royal Army Medical Corps. He came to Canada and started a family practice in Quesnel in 1981, also creating a geriatric assessment service in 1996, and has since continued to specialize in the care of elderly patients. Dr. Fine has led multiple quality improvement projects aimed at reducing emergency room visits and hospital admissions of elderly patients. He emphasizes that quality healthcare should reflect the values of the patient and their family, and should provide services to ensure that older people can enjoy their lives in comfort and dignity. He also reflects on the joys of living in Northern BC, such as skiing with his grandkids, fishing, and wildlife viewing from his own backyard. After over 40 years in medicine Dr. Fine will begin enjoying a well deserved retirement on April 1, 2022.
