Announcing the winners of the
2016 Dr. Brad Ardell Spirit Award:
Melissa Andersen & Tamara Tsang
Each year, residents and staff have an opportunity to nominate individuals for the Dr. Brad Ardell Spirit Award, in recognition of residents who exhibit characteristics of a “true prairie spirit”: dependability, selflessness and compassion. They exemplify integrity, empathy and care to all. They treat every day as a challenge, an opportunity for accomplishment and achievement, and are innovative and creative thinkers.
This year’s nominations included two equally deserving candidates, and as a result, the Awards Committee chose two winners: Melissa Andersen, a third-year Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation resident, and Tamara Tsang, a first-year Family Medicine resident. Their awards will be presented at the PAIRS New Year’s Gala on January 21.
Congratulations to both Melissa and Tamara on this well-deserved honour!
