This honour recognizes Hayden’s contribution to our understanding of Huntington’s disease and other genetic disorders.

Clinical professor of anesthesiology in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC, Dr. Angela Enright was named an Officer of the Order of Canada for her contributions to the field of anesthesiology in Canada and the developing world.

Dr. Robert Taylor is a clinical associate professor in the department of surgery in the Faculty of Medicine and a staff member with Vancouver’s Providence Health Care Hospitals.   Taylor was named a Member of the Order of Canada for his humanitarian contributions to improving medical services and surgical care in the developing world.
