The first recipient of the BCMA’s Dr David Bachop Gold Medal has once again been honored, this time by the University of Victoria. Dr Bob Young was celebrated at the university’s Distinguished Alumni Awards banquet in Victoria on 9 February for his accomplishments in the Division of Medical Sciences.
Dr Young represented Victoria on the BCMA Board of Directors for 20 years, and the citation for the award extolled his role in the BCMA’s public relations program, particularly the successful seatbelt, bike helmet, and infant seat campaigns.
Bob Young was a family physician for 38 years. He also edited the BCMA News and wrote more than 1100 info/health columns that appeared in newspapers across British Columbia.
Congratulations Dr Young!
—Jim Gilmore, Former Director of BCMA Communications
