Dr. Peter Hull will be presented with the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) Award of Merit in early June. This prestigious award recognizes excellence of leadership in contributions made to the Canadian Dermatology Association and the specialty of dermatology.
The Chair of the Membership and Awards Committee wrote, "As a remarkable advocate, you have helped patients navigate the complex and often intimidating health care system, and have ensured your patients receive the most advanced treatments in a province with limited access to dermatology. Most notable has been your persistent and tactful advocacy for dermatology residency positions in Saskatchewan. Your determination and leadership has ensured the province will have a dermatology presence for years to come.
Through your work as a researcher and teacher you have shared your knowledge and enthusiasm for dermatology and mentored numerous students. You have inspired students to look with wonder and curiosity, not only at the clinical aspects of dermatology but at the genetic and molecular mechanisms that drive them."
