“Saskatchewan is truly a hidden gem – okay, maybe not so hidden anymore. As I reflect on 25 years of living and working in Saskatchewan (Saskatoon is home), I count my many blessings. Not only have my wife and I both had flourishing and immensely rewarding medical careers in Saskatoon, we have been blessed to raise our children in a truly diverse and caring community. I am also hugely appreciative of the wonderful career development and physician leadership opportunities working in Saskatchewan has provided. Saskatchewan is home and I am grateful for it.”Dr. Mateen Raazi MBBS, FRCPC, DABA
