Recognizing B.C. Medal of Good Citizenship recipient Dr. Kendall Ho
British Columbia’s Medal of Good Citizenship recognizes British Columbians who have acted in a particularly generous, kind or selfless manner for the common good without expectation of reward. Dr. Kendall Ho, emergency physician at Vancouver General Hospital, digital emergency medicine researcher and professor in the UBC Faculty of Medicine, is one of the 31 people receiving this accolade this year for his contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Celebrating Dr. Kendall Ho
The Medal of Good Citizenship was presented to Kendall by Honourable George Heyman, B.C. Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and MLA for Vancouver-Fairview during a virtual ceremony on March 24.
“I feel very fortunate that, during this challenging time of COVID, I can contribute my medical and language skills, and work with many dedicated people and organizations in B.C. to help provide meaningful support to our community members in their times of need,” said Kendall. “I am deeply humbled by this award, and it should be rightly shared with all the folks with whom I have the pleasure of collaborating.”
