Dr. S. Librach Award for Palliative Care in the Community – Dr. Bob Sauls is the 2015 Recipient

This award honours Dr. Larry Librach who began his medical career in 1970, and became an early presence in the field of palliative care in 1978 and was instrumental in shaping the Canadian approach to palliative care and palliative medicine. Throughout his 35 years in palliative care, Dr. Librach was a teacher and mentor, an encouraging and enthusiastic colleague and friend who embraced every opportunity to give of himself, and who consistently inspired others to do the same.

The award is a $2,500 cash award bestowed annually to a physician who demonstrates excellence and leadership in palliative care and advances palliative care in their communities through mentorship of family physicians.
