The E-QIP team is thrilled to announce that in April we welcomed Maria Papadimitriou as the new co-lead of the Excellence through Quality Improvement Project and Director of Quality and System Performance at Addictions and Mental Health Ontario.

Before Joining E-QIP,  Maria was at Health Quality Ontario working in collaboration with health system, and cross-sectoral partners to advance health equity as a measure of quality and, most recently, was Co-Lead on the development of Ontario Health’s Equity, Inclusion, Diversity and Anti-Racism Framework.

Earlier in their career, Maria spent many years working in collaboration with child and youth community mental health service providers to co-develop substance use service improvements with youth and families and to build system capacity to provide harm reduction supports to youth.

Maria’s experience at both the system and front-line level, as well as her background in equity, inclusion, diversity and anti-racism, bring an important perspective to our work.

Welcome Maria, we are thrilled to have you join our team!
