Meet Our Board President - Susan Wood - Bohm
October 2nd, 2020

Susan Wood-Bohm has a BSc (Agr) from the University of Guelph, an MSc (Biology) from Queen’s University, and also a Ph.D. (Molecular Genetics) from Queen’s University.

Recently retired, she has held positions as a Director of Research at Queen’s University, the Executive Director, Alberta Innovates, a Regional Director, United Nations Sustainable Development Network, and a Co-chair, Investment Management Committee, Bio Industrial Innovation Canada.

“I have been fortunate to enjoy a career that has spanned “the four realms” of business, academia, government and the United Nations – focused on addressing particularly challenging global issues such as climate change, and food safety and security,” said Susan Wood – Bohm.  “My work has included teaching, strategic planning, analysis and recommendations and negotiation.”

A resident of the Lakefield, Douro – Dummer area of Peterborough County, Susan has served on Community Care’s Board of Directors for 4 years, serving on various Board committees and becoming the President in the fiscal year 2019/2020.  Susan is in her second year of a two year term as President and in 2021/2022 will become a Past – President.  

“Some of the most influential people in my life have been beloved elderly relatives, who wanted to stay in their homes as vital members of their communities for as long as practicable,” said Wood – Bohm.  “I joined Community Care Peterborough with the hope that my skills could be of some use to the goal of helping others remain at home, healthy, happy and well supported.”

Why is a scientist and business consultant interested in Community Care?

“I firmly believe that every societal success is underpinned by the care and compassion for our most vulnerable,” added Wood – Bohm.
