"Latest News" newsletter

"Latest News" newsletter

“Latest News,” Doctors Nova Scotia’s email newsletter, is delivered bi-weekly to more than 3,700 physicians and health-care stakeholders. The attractive, easy-to-read digest format condenses and consolidates important updates, making it a highly effective means of communicating with DNS members.

In addition to the association’s regular member updates, contributions from health-care stakeholders such as public health authorities, academic institutions and the province's health authorities are welcome.

The newsletter is sent every Thursday, with the occasional schedule change as needed to accommodate holidays.

To contribute to “Latest News,” send your 45-word write-up (including URL where readers can find more information, or email address, as appropriate) to Melissa Murray by 12 p.m. (noon) on the Monday prior to publication. Please note: Event listings should be submitted to the events calendar, not the e-newsletter.
