The Board award recognizes an individual (or a group) who is not an AFHTO member but has significantly contributed to the development and growth of team-based primary care within their local community or at the provincial level.

The winner(s) will receive their award(s) during the virtual Bright Lights Awards Ceremony at the AFHTO 2021 Conference on October 27, 2021.

Submit a nomination online for the Board Award category by August 20, 2021.

Other related updates: We’re currently in discussions with potential sponsors for AFHTO’s “Bright Lights” Awards, which recognize AFHTO members’ leadership, outstanding work and the significant progress being made to improve the value interprofessional primary care teams across Ontario deliver. Nominations will open soon, but members can get started by taking these things into consideration.
