Earlier today, Dr. Merril Knudtson, Libin member and cardiologist at the University of Calgary, was named among the new members of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honour. He joins 70 other new appointments, including former Alberta premier Ralph Klein and Lois Mitchell, who were announced by Governor General David Johnston.
Knudtson is recognized for his contributions to cardiology and health care. In 1995, he had the vision for and created the APPROACH project (Alberta Provincial Project for Outcomes Assessments in Coronary Heart Disease). The database tracks the long-term outcome of cardiac patients across Canada.
Join us in congratulating him on this great honour!
