Our Leadership

Board of Directors    

President, Dr. Laura Arul was born and raised in Quebec City. She completed her medical degree at McGill University and her family medicine residency at Queen's University. She worked as a hospitalist in small community hospitals before moving to Picton. She has been in practice in Picton since 2017, including working at a local nursing home and working at the PEFHT Memory Clinic. 

Vice President, Dr. Sarah Le Blanc moved to Prince Edward County with her husband and daughter in 2015, after studying here as a medical student.  Sarah is originally from Carleton Place, and spent time studying in both Montreal and Kingston before settling in the County.  Sarah works in her office practice, the ward and the ER at our local hospital, and takes a special interest in home- and hospice-based palliative care.  It is her pleasure to serve on the board of the PEFHT, to give back to a community that has given her family so much.
