Whistler Awarded the BC Rural Community Health Award
for COVID-19 Response
This past May, Whistler's Dr. Karin Kausky accepted the RCCbc Community Award from the Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc) on behalf of the community of Whistler for our COVID-19 response.
Each year, the RCCbc recognizes the phenomenal work of BC’s rural physicians and communities and identifies a community that has developed innovative and collaborative approaches and solutions to local healthcare issues or supported and enhanced the sustainability of the rural health care services and /or providers within their community. The community celebrated receiving the award this past September and copies were handed out to community partners in recognition of their collaboration.
