Congratulations to Dr. Simon Levin, Associate Professor, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and Dr. Richard Owen, Assistant Professor, Psychiatry, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry on receiving London Health Sciences Centre President's Awards.

Dr. Levin, section head of paediatric neurology at Children's Hospital, was awarded the President's Award for Physician Leadership. Established to honour the leadership legacy of the late Dr. Murray Girotti, this award recognizes physicians who demonstrate the leadership qualities he exemplified. Dr. Levin is being honoured for his leadership in patient care, education and administration.

Dr. Owen, psychiatrist with LHSC's Adult Mental Health Care Program, was honoured with the President's Awards for Living Our Core Values. This award recognizes two individuals who consistently demonstrate LHSC's values of respect, trust and collaboration - one focussed on how we work together and the other on how we serve our patients. Dr. Owen is being recognized for demonstrating LHSC's core values in "how we serve our patients" due to his commitment to providing hope for patients and improving mental health services and support at LHSC and within the community.

All nominees and recipients will be honoured at an awards ceremony on June 7 at 3:00 p.m. in the Sumner Auditorium (B2-119) at Victoria Hospital.
