We are thrilled to welcome Madison Tevlin as our invited speaker for the Department of Psychiatry's Grand Rounds in September of 2023.

Madison is the host of the CBC Gem show "Who Do You Think I Am?".  On this show, she chats with misrepresented, misinterpreted, and misperceived people.  She gets to the heart of her guests stories and has everyone feeling like they've been heard, seen, and are sitting in good company.

Madison is also one of the stars of the movie "Champions".
