Congratulations to Geneviève Auclair (EMBA’17) who received a Meritorious Service Decoration from the Governor General of Canada this week.
As a physician, Geneviève is recognized for spearheading a successful campaign to recruit health care professionals to the Inuulitsivik Health Centre in Nunavik. This initiative also helped introduce local youth to potential careers as doctors, nurses, and technicians.
During her tenure as chief of medicine, the number of permanent staff increased significantly. With new physicians and support workers arriving and opting to stay longer, she has helped create a more stable health care service for the region’s residents.
