SOGC congratulates Regional Award winner for Quebec, Dr. Suzanne Roberge

The SOGC is delighted to announce Dr. Suzanne Roberge as this year’s regional award winner for Quebec for her many years of service and volunteerism. The award was awarded at the Quebec CME earlier this month.

Dr. Roberge graduated in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Montreal in 1995 and she has practiced as an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist at CISSS de la Côte-Nord (Baie-Comeau) for the past 22 years. While her clinical activities are high-risk pregnancy, ultrasound, general gynecology (basic uro-gynecologist) and colposcopy, she has admittedly always had difficulty saying “no” to worthy projects in Canada and around the world.

She is a member of the Society of Canadian Colposcopists (SCC) and the American Society of Colposcopists and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP), the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL). She is also actively involved in the ALARM International Committees and Global Health of the SOGC.

As a volunteer for the SOGC, Dr. Roberge has also participated in several international ALARM (AIP) expeditions in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Haïti, Mali and most currently in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Within the Mali project, she also contributed to the drafting of clinical guidelines and is now involved in supporting the implementation of post-AIP training follow-up and evaluation activities in the DRC project. Dr. Roberge is a member and volunteer for the Canadian Network for International Surgery. She is an instructor for classes FIRST and SOO (Structured Operative Obstetrics) and she taught in Tanzania and Uganda.
 
Dr. Roberge is also a strong community leader closer to home, and devotes extra time to working in a palliative care home, speaking to students at local schools, and helping to organize and fundraise for Terry Fox runs—anywhere and any cause she believes needs a helping hand.
 
Dr. Roberge represents the best and the most devoted of our profession. 
 
Congratulations, Suzanne.
