A rural Alberta physician who has served Sundre and area residents for nearly two decades is the recipient of the 2016 Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP) Rural Alberta Physician Award of Distinction.

Dr. Vesta Michelle Warren of Sundre was selected by a review committee composed of rural community members across Alberta for the 2016 Rural Physician Award, citing her creative and innovative approach to serving her community since 1999.   

According to RPAP Interim Executive Director, Dr. Jacques Magnan, the review committee made special mention of Dr. Warren’s use of nurse practitioners, her willingness to mentor future generations of physicians at the Moose and Squirrel Clinic, and her role as a strong advocate and volunteer within the community as some of the reasons for her selection.

“The RPAP Board of Directors agrees with the review committee that Dr. Warren is a forward thinking physician that her community should be proud to have.”

Planning is now underway for an event to recognize Dr. Warren in the community.

The RPAP Rural Physician Award of Distinction was created in 2002 to recognize the contributions of all rural physicians, especially those ‘unsung heroes’ who provide Alberta rural communities with outstanding medical services and who make huge contributions to medical practice and their communities.

RPAP | Health Workforce for Alberta is an independent, not-for-profit company funded by the Alberta Ministry of Health. Established in 1991 by the Government of Alberta, RPAP supports the ongoing efforts of Alberta’s rural physicians, their families and communities to improve the quality of rural health care.
