Ottawa – 18 September 2020

The Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS) is pleased to unveil the list of individuals that were selected to join as Fellows for 2020.

CAHS recognizes excellence in health sciences.  Fellows have demonstrated, through their careers and lives, that they are committed to their field of expertise in many ways.

In a year where the impact of health sciences has been celebrated through our struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic and its many repercussions, we were pleased to receive the largest ever number of applications for Fellowship.

Speaking to the new Fellows, the Chair of the Fellowship Committee, Dr. Proton Rahman, said, “Congratulations on being elected as a Fellow in the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences.  Your induction is a reflection of your vision, innovation and sustained excellence in your field and, undoubtedly, your expertise will further enrich our Academy.  We are looking forward to your engagement in CAHS’ activities.”

Dr. Paul Allison, CAHS’ President, congratulated the new Fellows and mentioned, “Your dedication to health sciences is what is recognized today.  Our Fellows understand that being elected to the Academy carries with it a covenant to serve the Academy and the future wellbeing of the health sciences, irrespective of the Fellow’s specific discipline.”
