Last October Dr. Keith Dawson received two of Canada’s most prestigious medical citations.
The first was the Gerald S. Wong Award earned for his exceptional efforts in assisting individuals with diabetes. The second was the Distinguished Service Award. He was chosen by his peers to receive this award for his contributions to the field of endocrinology.
Dr. Dawson has been a director of the B.C. Endocrine Research Foundation since it began over two and a half years ago. He has been involved with the Canadian Diabetes Association for many years and was a leader in educating general physicians about diabetes. As a MD and a PhD Dr. Dawson is very committed to research and education while maintaining his medical practice.
