Since 2002, the RhPAP Awards program has celebrated rural Alberta’s health-care heroes and rural communities with a healthy dose of recognition.
This year, we are reintroducing our awards as the RhPAP “Rhapsody Awards”: a play on our name, a recognition of our renewed and expanded mandate, and a celebration of those individuals, teams, and communities that have made significant civic and health-care contributions in rural and remote Alberta communities.
You now have until July 20 to nominate your local health-care heroes for a Rhapsody Award in one of three categories:
Rural Alberta Physician of Distinction
Founded in 2002, this Rhapsody Award recognizes the contributions of rural physicians, especially those “unsung heroes,” who provide Alberta rural communities with outstanding patient care and make notable contributions to medical practice and to their communities.
Rural Alberta Community Health Professional Attraction and Retention
Founded in 2007, this Rhapsody Award recognizes a rural Alberta community that has developed innovative and collaborative approaches to successfully attract and retain health-care professional(s) in their area.
Rural Alberta Health-care Heroes (Individual or Team)
New in 2018, these Rhapsody Awards recognize rural Alberta health professionals or teams that demonstrate superior commitment to their patients, health-care team, and community.
