Award News: Dr. Steve Beerman

Congratulations to Dr. Steve Beerman, director of the Nanaimo Postgraduate Training Site, who received two major awards recently.

On Monday, May 10 he was awarded the Royal Life Saving Society’s King Edward VII Cup to recognize his outstanding contributions to life saving.

In more straightforward years, Dr. Beerman would have received his award in person during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. This year however, Dr. Beerman received the award during a video call, during which Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II remembered her own life saving award 80 years ago.
