Dr. Carl Robbins, chair of Telemedicine, Lt.-Gov. Dr. Maxwell House and Dr. Axel Meisen.

The Telemedicine Centre hosted an informal congratulation party for Dr. Max House, Lt.-Gov. of the province and founder of telemedicine in Newfoundland. He was recently one of two winners of the Year 2000 Canadian Society of Telehealth Award in recognition of his contributions to the development and long-term sustainability of the telemedicine program at Memorial and its impact on telehealth in Canada. The other winner was Dr. Louis Laureng of France. In applauding Dr. House’s record and continued interest in telemedicine, university president Dr. Axel Meisen said he is proud of the past history of the Telemedicine Centre and looks to continued future leadership and achievements in this field. Dr. House said the Telemedicine Centre was built through strong teamwork and the support of the university.
