Every Friday, we provide a round-up of notes an acitivites that impact RPAP and health care in rural Alberta communities. 

This week's round-up has a distinctly northwestern flavour, as we follow our roving Rural Consultant, Rebekah Seidel, through the Peace Country, congratulate a long-serving rural doc in Beaverlodge, and revel in the glow of a successful Skills event in Manning.

A piece of heaven

During the past weeek, our Rural Consultant, Rebekah Seidel, travelled through northwestern Alberta, meeting with hardworking Albertans, and taking in the beauty of the Peace Country.

Congratulations Dr. Miller!

Newly-minted Rural Consultant, Holly Handfield, was on hand in Beaverlodge last night for the presentation of the CPSA Certificate of Merit Award for 2016 to  Dr. David Miller. According to Holly, Dr. Miller has practiced for 45 years in Beaverlodge, Alberta and the award is well deserved.
