Announcing CAPHC's 2016 Award Winners!
The Recipient of CAPHC's 2016 Contribution to Child Health Award:
Congratulations to Dr Shoo Lee!
On behalf of the CAPHC Board of Directors, it is an honour and privilege to recognize and congratulate Dr. Shoo Lee as the recipient of CAPHC’s 2016 Contribution to Child Health Award!
The CAPHC Contribution to Child Health Award was created by the CAPHC Board of Directors in 2005 to recognize outstanding achievement by an individual who has dedicated his or her career to making a difference to the health and well-being of children, youth and families in Canada. This award also recognizes outstanding achievements of an individual who has exemplified creativity and initiative in taking action to improve and promote paediatric healthcare and health research.
Throughout his career, Dr Lee has made a most meaningful difference in the lives of so many infants, children, youth and families through his research and clinical achievements, mentorship, teaching and exemplary leadership in research, health promotion and innovative practice change. As the Founder and former Director of the Canadian Neonatal Network (CNN), this national network has profoundly modified the practice of neonatology in Canada and beyond our national borders.
CAPHC would also like to applaud Dr Lee’s leadership as the Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health. In this role Dr. Lee has lead and enabled new and innovative opportunities in maternal, child and youth health research, while maintaining a genuine respect to the contribution and collaboration of Canada’s inter-professional research community.
Dr Lee’s collegiality, inter-professionalism and family engagement, as well as commitment to improving quality of care, patient outcomes and health care service delivery, are highly valued by CAPHC.
CAPHC’s 2016 Contribution to Child Health Award will be presented to Dr. Lee on October 25, 2016 at CAPHC’s Annual Awards Luncheon, to be held in conjunction with CAPHC’s Annual Conference in Halifax, at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel.
Congratulations Dr. Lee!
The Recipient of CAPHC's 2016 Citizenship Award:
Congratulations to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation!
On behalf of the CAPHC Board of Directors, it is an honour and privilege to recognize the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation (ACHF) as the recipient of the CAPHC 2016 Citizenship Award. CAPHC’s Citizenship Award was established in 2007 to honour Organizations, Foundations, or Corporations for their commitment to the health and well-being of Canada’s children and youth.
Since 1957, the Foundation has inspired and enabled local, provincial, national and international excellence in research, patient & family health services and education that have resulted in many innovative and effective programs for so many children and youth. Some of these innovations include Brain Health, Family Centred Care, Health Genomics and Informatics, new treatments in Childhood Epilepsy, leadership in Paediatric Simulation Programs, and Hospital at Home, the first in Canada pilot program providing chemotherapy in the home.
The 2016 Citizenship Award also recognizes the Foundation’s philanthropic leadership by being one of only four Children’s Hospital Foundations in Canada to be accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standard’s Program. This recognition involves a rigorous review of the Foundation’s work and impact and isdesigned to assess an organization’s exemplary performance. We applaud the ACHF for achieving this national recognition in operating standards.
CAPHC would also like to recognize the Foundation’s longstanding partnership with CAPHC and their commitment to the health and well-being of Canada’s children and youth.
CAPHC will be honoring The Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation at our Annual Awards Luncheon to be held on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, in conjunction with our Annual Conference in Halifax Nova Scotia, at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel.
Congratulations to all our Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation colleagues!
