Getting to Know the MJLH, vol 8: Francesca Taddeo, Editor-in-Chief

Posted By Rosel Kim – Sep. 4, 2013

What do you do at the MJLH?

I will be the Editor-in-Chief for Volume 8. This means I will be working with the other members of the executive to ensure a pleasant learning atmosphere for the journal members, create visibility of the MJLH among the student, legal and academic communities and help the Executives achieve the goals set out for their respective boards. It should be a busy but fun year!

Qu’est-que vous avez fait cet été?

This summer I worked at a summer student at BLG’s Montreal office. I also played golf on the weekends and took my first trip to Mexico.

Where do you get your health news?

From the MJLH Online board of course! I also like to read at least one provincial and national newspaper every day. For the more scandalous (and gossipy) health news, the Daily Mail is a must.

In your opinion, which ‘big issues’ in health law will future lawyers have to deal with?

Anything having to do with end-of-life care. Also, I hope that an issue which will gather an increasing amount of attention is the need to broaden the array of tests in newborn screening programs (for example, newborns are not screened for cystic fibrosis at birth, an early detection of which could significantly improve the quality of life and life expectancy of those who suffer from the disease).

Avez-vous essayé un Montréal Food Truck cet été? Si oui, quel est votre truck favori?

I am still hoping to eat a lobster roll at Lucille’s food truck! I have had a bagel from the St-Viateur food truck, and the obligatory hot dog and french fries. I am loving these additions to the Montreal food scene.
