Dr. Vanessa Poliquin MD
Dr. Poliquin attended medical school at the University of Western Ontario and completed her residency training at the University of Manitoba. Following residency, Dr. Poliquin pursued a fellowship in Reproductive Infectious Diseases with training distributed between Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto. Presently, she is an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba and is completing a Master’s Degree in Epidemiology through the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Dr. Poliquin is involved in a number of national collaborations related to immunizations in pregnancy. She is a member of the SOGC’s Infectious Diseases Committee and has recently co-authored the revised guideline on “Immunizations in Pregnancy”. And, while she is passionate about the her work, she’ll quickly confess that highlight of her every day is reading bedtime stories with her two sons and indulging in a glass of wine and her husband’s fabulous cooking.
