February 12 was a chance for faculty members to mingle among peers and share their stories of success at the Reception in Honour of Excellence in Research and Teaching. The University of Ottawa hosts the annual event to honour faculty members across all faculties who have received an external award in the last year. Recipients and deans were invited to gather in Huguette Labelle Hall for an evening of refreshments and camaraderie.
Among those present last night were Jacques Frémont, University of Ottawa president and vice-chancellor; Sylvain Charbonneau, vice-president, research; and Jill Scott, provost and vice-president academic affairs. The Department of Family Medicine is proud to share the following list of its own recipients in celebration of their accomplishments over the past year. Congratulations!
