Dr. Giacomantonio Receives Honour from Italian Republic

On April 2CG7, 2013 Dr. Carman Giacomantonio was presented with the Order of Merit for Italy, making him a Knight of the Italian Republic. The honour was presented to him by Dr. Enrico Padula, the Consul General of Italy in Montreal and Mr. Rodolfo Meloni, the Honourary Consul of the Italian Republic in Nova Scotia during a celebration at the Italian Canadian Convention Centre in Halifax.

“This award is similar to the Order of Canada, and it is awarded by the President of Italy and the Italian Prime Minister", said Mr. Meloni. “Each country has a means of recognizing those who go above and beyond in fields including literature, the arts, economy, public service as well as social, philanthropic and humanitarian activities. Dr. Giacomantonio received the award in recognition of his leadership role as Chief Medical Director for Cancer Care Nova Scotia and for his outstanding contributions as a cancer surgeon, researcher, educator and community leader.”
