The BC Cancer Agency awarded their 2012 Community Care Award to Dr Douglas McGregor, a physician who has devoted much of his career to the care of palliative patients. Minister of Health Margaret MacDiarmid presented the award to Dr McGregor at the BC Cancer Agency’s annual cancer conference award banquet in November last year.
The award honors an exceptional individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty in providing care and support to cancer patients, and who makes a difference in the lives of people living with cancer. Dr McGregor, nominated by his colleagues at the St. James Community Service Society, was recognized for his outstanding service, passion, and leadership in developing and providing hospice care.
Congratulations to Dr McGregor on winning this prestigious award.
