Ed Ziesmann

Vice President, Education, Programs & Services

Ed Ziesmann came to the Arthritis Society in April 2012 with a wealth of experience in the health care sector as a clinician and leader. He has oversight of three key areas of our mission, including the creation of self-management education and programs that directly support people with arthritis, healthcare professional development programs that drive best practice care, and the delivery of rehabilitation services to people with arthritis in Ontario through the use of a variety of models of care and interprofessional relationships.

Ed is recognized as a dedicated, progressive and respected health care leader with a proven record of success in strategic, operational, human resource and clinical program planning initiatives. A physiotherapist by profession, his passion to help those whose lives are compromised by disease and disability is exemplified by a career that spans contributions in the acute, specialized and community rehabilitation sectors, including responsibility for a number of predominantly musculoskeletal/arthritis programs.
