Pediatric Oncology Award for Soldiers’ Pediatrician

11/27/2007 12:00:00 AM

 Dr. Alan Hudak of Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital in Orillia is being honoured for his work on behalf of children who have cancer. He will receive the Valued Contribution Award from the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) at a symposium in Toronto this weekend.


Dr. Hudak has led the Child Cancer Clinic at Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital since its inception in 1996. Soldiers’ is the only hospital in all of North-Simcoe Muskoka LHIN 12, providing needed chemotherapy and other cancer services for children. (The Soldiers’ program is in fact the only hospital child cancer clinic between Toronto and Sudbury.)


Dr. Hudak is being honoured not only for his work at Soldiers’. The POGO Valued Contribution Award is given to individuals who have made a valued contribution beyond their local professional roles and commitments to pediatric oncology in Ontario.


“The award is extended to Dr. Hudak in recognition of his generous and enthusiastic participation in many POGO initiatives including plan development; contributions to annual symposia as committee member, panel chair and speaker; and membership on the POGO Advisory Council,” says Pogo Executive Director Dr. Corin Greenberg. “We thank him for the energy and enthusiasm he invests in the provincial pediatric cancer system.”


“I have wholeheartedly supported POGO and its initiatives especially the satellite program, which provides cancer care to children closer to their home community,” says Dr. Hudak. “We have developed a superb care team here at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital and I am very proud to be part of this group. This award is also for the whole team.”
