FAB Congratulates Susan Sherwin on her appointment as member of the Order of Canada
Dr Sherwin was appointed “For her contributions as a scholar, mentor and leader in the field of feminist bioethics, notably through her writings on discrimination in health care.” This is a wonderful, deserved, national recognition of Dr Sherwin’s work in feminist bioethics and its importance in Canada.
Established in 1967 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is the cornerstone of the Canadian Honours System, and recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. The Order recognizes people in all sectors of Canadian society. Their contributions are varied, yet they have all enriched the lives of others and made a difference to Canada. Since its creation, more than 6 000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
A brief television interview with Sue about the appointment is found here.
