Dr. Perry Kendall, a clinical professor at the UBC faculty of medicine’s School of Population and Public Health, was recently appointed to the Order of Canada.
He is one of 83 new appointments to the Order for 2019. Governor General Julie Payette made the announcement in June.
Kendall, also the co-interim executive director at the BC Centre on Substance Use, received the honour for his leadership in the public health sphere both in British Columbia and across the country, particularly as an advocate for harm reduction and as a champion for Indigenous health.
