Our regional award for the Central Region goes to Dr. Hussam Azzam - a long time contributor to the SOGC. Dr. Azzam recently became the new medical director at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Prince Edward Island after 20 years as a medical leader, educator, obstetrician and gynaecologist in northern Manitoba.

He is recognized by his colleagues as a transformational leader who fosters a culture of clinical excellence through collaboration, leading by example and by promoting innovation.

Congratulations, Sam.
