The Department of Family Medicine is pleased to congratulate Dr. Bhooma Bhayana on receiving the 2013 College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) Geeta Gupta Award for Equity and Diversity.
Supported by the Research and Education Foundation of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ben Topor Family Foundation, the award is named in honour of Dr. Geeta Gupta, a family physician devoted to working with minority and ethnic communities to provide medical care, and for her commitment to continuity in family practice.
Funding for this award is provided by the Ben Topor Family Foundation through the Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal, in recognition of Dr. Gupta's support, availability, and loyalty to the Topor family for more than a generation.
The award recognizes the achievements of an outstanding family physician CFPC member in active practice (or a team) who has shown leadership and advanced awareness working in his or her practice and community to foster respect and understanding of a minority or under-serviced population.
The award will be presented during Family Medicine Forum (FMF) 2013 in Vancouver, BC, held November 7 to 9, 2013.
