New director of forensics

On top of being a full-time forensic pathologist and Medical Director of Health Sciences’ North Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology, Dr. Kona Williams teaches at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and is also pursuing a Master of Medical Studies.

Now, she can add one more entry on her resume as the first indigenous Medical Director of a Canadian Forensic Pathology Unit.

As someone who knows both the culture, traditions, and history of Native communities, she sees her role is to be the bridge between these two worlds.

HSN congratulated Dr. Williams on her new promotion and thanked Dr. Martin Queen for leading the Forensic Pathology Unit for the last 22 years.
