Dennis Abud, Lizon Chiasson-Foulem and Denis Larocque join the Board.

Moncton, Monday, July 11, 2016—The CHU Dumont Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors. Dennis Abud, Lizon Chiasson-Foulem and Denis Larocque were officially appointed at the Foundation’s Annual General Meeting in Moncton on June 27, 2016.

“We are thrilled to have these three new members join the Foundation. Dennis, Lizon and Denis are all well-respected members of the community. They each have a great deal of experience in their respective field, and care deeply about the best interests of the community as well as improved care at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. I am confident they will help us reach our many goals,” says René Collette, Chair of the Board of Directors.

Dennis Abud, a pharmacist and owner of two Jean Coutu locations in Dieppe, is looking forward to a new challenge. “I have worked in  healthcare  for many years. In this time, I have seen extraordinary improvements at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre, but there is still substantial work to be done. The Foundation does outstanding work and I am proud to be a part of it.”

Lizon Chiasson-Foulem, a lawyer at McIntyre Finn, is also very pleased to join the CHU Dumont Board of Directors. “Each year, the Foundation raises significant funds toward improving the quality of care offered at CHU Dumont. The direct impact on patient care is clear—from purchasing new equipment to improving patient comfort, the funds raised make an enormous difference.”

Denis Larocque, President and CEO of Major Drilling, commends the extraordinary work done by the CHU Dumont, as well as the contribution of the CHU Dumont Foundation. “The mandate of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre is different than that of other hospitals. Beyond offering a high quality of care, the CHU Dumont is highly engaged in research and medical training. I am delighted to join the Board of Directors and to support the Foundation in reaching its objectives!”
