Above and Beyond: Excellence abounds in Nova Scotia’s cancer system

‘Above and beyond’ aptly describes the commitment and dedication of the talented health professionals and volunteers who are part of Nova Scotia’s cancer system. Each day these individuals and teams do their bit and more to smooth a patient’s cancer journey, which is often marked with potholes and unexpected twists and turns. Cancer Care Nova Scotia’s annual Excellence Awards recognize the important contribution of all who are part of the system. Based on peer and / or community nominations, CCNS recognizes excellence in categories including: Leadership, Innovation, and Patient Care (health professional and volunteer).

This year’s recipients are: Dr. Robert Sers, the team at the Berman Zebrafish Laboratory at the IWK Health Centre, Ms. Mary Lou Robertson, and Mr. Jim Mulcahy.

All have one thing in common…. going above and beyond to enhance, and improve the lives of others.
