BRANTFORD, ON – At today’s Board of Health meeting, the Brant County Health Unit’s Medical Officer of Health (MOH) Dr. Malcolm Lock officially announced he will be retiring at the end of September 2019.

During his 16 years as MOH at the Health Unit, Dr. Lock has led the organization through many important issues and events including responding to new and emerging infectious diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS; providing timely direction on environmental health concerns such as the 2018 Brantford flood; and reducing the spread of infectious diseases through the management of our travel clinic.

“On behalf of the Board of Health, I would like to thank Dr. Lock for the leadership and commitment he has demonstrated as our MOH,” says Greg Anderson, Board Chair. “His knowledge and experience has been instrumental in guiding the delivery of public health services within our community, and we wish him the very best in his retirement.”

The Board of Health has initiated the necessary process to fill this crucial position. “While Dr. Lock will be missed, we will ensure there is no disruption of services while we transition to new leadership,” says Dr. JoAnn Tober, Chief Executive Officer (nee Executive Director) of the Health Unit.
