(July 12, 2016 - Orillia, ON) – The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) recently selected Dr. Sarah Barker, a paediatrician at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH), as the 2016 recipient of the Canadian Paediatric Society’s Certificate of Merit for the province of Ontario. 

“I am so honoured to receive this award and am very thankful to be recognized for my work in paediatric medicine,” said Dr. Barker.  

Certificates of Merit recognize paediatric physicians who have made exceptional contributions to the health of children and youth at a regional level.   

The Canadian Paediatric Society’s prestigious Certificate of Merit is awarded regionally to members who have worked to make a difference to the health of children.  Dr. Barker’s activities in research, teaching, vision and leadership in child and youth health in Ontario were cited as hallmarks of excellence that qualified her for this award.   

Dr. Barker will receive the Certificate of Merit at an upcoming ceremony later this year.
