A couple of very good friends in Vancouver somehow convinced the Canadian College of Family Physicians and Canadian Geriatrics Society to give me an award for innovation in geriatrics. I don’t deserve it. You can hear and see my acceptance speech at the Family Medicine Forum in Montréal on November 10, 2017 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw111qVG0ho.

*Congratulations to you! However I must disagree with you. You most definitely deserve this award and I thank you for all of your caring kindness with the elderly. Your ideas and actions have caused a positive sea change in geriatric care, one that certainly helps the elderly now and a change that will benefit many of us in the not so distant future! * *Warmest Regards,* *Margaret McCoy *
