An elite donor community dedicated to supporting strategic advancements in family medicine that is comprised of recipients of the Reg. L. Perkins Family Physician of the Year Award. This community can get “up close and personal” with the impact of their contributions. Trailblazers lend their vision, experience, and commitment to family medicine to advancing strategic projects selected by them.
They are passionate about supporting initiatives designed to respond to emerging challenges in family medicine.
On January 31, 2022, the Trailblazers came together to select the project on which to focus their support. We are pleased to announce that the Trailblazers have designated their support to advance the Family Medicine Around the World Mapping Project: Lessons for Canada and Beyond led by the Besrour Centre.
“Mapping family medicine models around the world, which remain very variable, will improve our understanding of what attributes of our discipline lead to better population health outcomes. Above all, as the world vacillates between infectious and chronic phases of a global pandemic, a generalist perspective is needed at this time to integrate layers of care at the health system level."
- Dr. David Ponka, Director, The Besrour Centre for Global Family Medicine
