Doctors are nominated by their peers, and an award is presented to a doctor from each region of the province.

He created and heads the Centre for Family Medicine Family Health Team — one of the first family health teams in Ontario. He was involved in developing the McMaster Kitchener-Waterloo family medicine residency program, and created the Community Ward Health Link team in Kitchener-Waterloo to support vulnerable patients who have difficulty accessing care.
