Dr. Brad Ardell Spirit Award
The Dr. Brad Ardell Spirit Award was created in 2008, in memory of Dr. Ardell who passed away suddenly during his third year of residency. The award recognizes residents who possess the same "true prairie spirit" as Dr. Ardell, a hard-working, compassionate and selfless individual. Nominations open each fall and the award is announced and presented in the new year.
Acceptance Message from Mackenzie Simpson:
"I am deeply honoured to accept the Dr. Brad Ardell Spirit Award for 2021. I would like to thank the USask College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and specifically, my program directors Dr. Inman and Dr. Woods, and fellow residents.
While I am grateful for this recognition, I want to highlight the prairie spirit that I have the privilege of working with every day. The comprehensive Pediatrics healthcare team consistently exemplifies dedication and selflessness. Their support over the last three years have made all the difference.
In memory of Dr. Brad Ardell, I am very grateful. Thank you!"
