Dr. Neal Cameron Stretch

BaSc, MaSc, M.D., CCFP, FCFP, FRRMS

Chief Medical Officer, International Needs Canada

Neal has a long career as a physician, with a special place in his heart for rural family medicine. His experience and research have taken him all over the world since 1985, including his own family practice in rural southwestern Ontario.

Neal is married to Aggie; together they have three married sons and one grandchild, and live in southwestern Ontario. In his downtime, Neal plays saxophone in his band, The Usual Suspects. He’s at his most relaxed when he’s shooting photos or fly-fishing in the local stream.

Neal has been involved with IN Canada since 2002, volunteering his time to lead community health clinics in Africa and Asia. We were very excited that he agreed to join us in an official capacity when he retired from his family practice in 2016. He now provides strategy and consulting on our international medical and health projects.
