Physicians feted for contributions to rural medicine

Two local physicians were recognized earlier this month for their longstanding contributions to rural medicine.
Dr. Luis Rivero Pinelo was presented with the Rural Long Service Award and Dr. Keith MacLellan was honoured with the Rural Leadership Award from the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC). The awards were presented at the Society’s 27th Annual Rural and Remote Medicine Course in Halifax, N.S. on April 5.
The SRPC was founded in 1992 to champion rural medical care through education, advocacy, collaboration and research. The group has over 1,500 members nation-wide and is based in Shawville.
