2023 South Island MSA Award for Community Leadership

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be celebrating those who received South Island MSA Recognition Awards at this year’s Annual General Meeting.

This year, we have two winners of the Community Leadership award.  Nominated by Dr. Alicia Power, we recognize the contributions of Dr. Vanessa Young.

As a leader within the Victoria medical community, Dr. Young’s contributions have been numerous.  From her long-standing role as co-chair of the South Island Division of Family Practice to her dedication to supporting family practice students and residents in the Island Medical Program, her passion for community-based longitudinal family practice is evident.  Much of Vanessa’s time is focused on recruiting and welcoming new family physicians, as well as building a community and system where they want to stay and practice.  An avid athlete, she also serves as the Co-Medical Director for the Royal Victoria Marathon.

For everything she does to improve professional and collegial bonds, we are delighted to recognize Dr. Vanessa Young with the South Island MSA Award for Community Leadership.
