On September 28th, the Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health (CERH) Team hosted a Remarkable Healthcare Workers and Volunteers Recognition Event at Knight of Columbus Hall in Goderich. This evening provided respite, respect and recognition for caregivers in our community who have been going above and beyond the call of duty to provide care for our local community.

Words of recognition (written by community members) and gifts (sourced from local artists) were presented to each caregiver. We are hopeful this evening provided a sense of unity in the face of the past few years of uncertainty.
