Now more than ever, we need to do health differently.
The Canadian Medical Association’s annual awards celebrate changemakers from across the country for their significant contributions to health, health care and the medical profession.
Recipients of the CMA Awards come from different career stages, specialties and backgrounds, and from rural and remote areas as well as big cities. They also reflect the diversity of the profession and the communities we serve.
