SAC Member Receives Distinguished Service Award from the Canadian Geriatric Society

Each year the Canadian Geriatric Society (CGS) presents an award at its Annual Meeting to recognize an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the health care of older adults in Canada.  Geriatrician Alexandra Papaioannou received the 2017 Ronald Cape Distinguished Service Award from the Canadian Geriatric Society. The McMaster University professor of medicine has developed clinical practice guidelines on osteoporosis and preventing fractures in long term care, and she founded the Geriatric Education and Research in Aging Sciences (GERAS) Centre at Hamilton’s Health Sciences Centre and McMaster University .  Dr. Papaioannou’s contributions have made a positive and lasting effect on geriatric care in Canada.

Congratulations Alex!
