The Freeport Physicians Education Fund is dedicated to the provision of education to health care providers. The fund is run by a group of physicians who provide hospitalist care to Complex Continuing Care, Rehabilitation and Mental Health patients at Freeport. For more than 25 years, the Fund has sponsored an annual conference for physicians and other health care providers who care for elderly, disabled and palliative patients in Waterloo Region and the surrounding area. We showcase many local specialists as speakers. Proceeds from the conferences are used to pay distinguished keynote speakers and to sponsor Freeport staff to attend the conference. We also support educational scholarships for staff and physicians who work at Freeport Health Centre. More recently, we have started to provide financial support to medical and nursing students in third world countries.
