Special Recognition Award
At the 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver, Richard Johnson was awarded a CUHMA Special Recognition Award for the vital role he has played not only in CUHMA, but also in the Canadian Chapter of UHMS and the Great Lakes Chapter before that. He has never sought the limelight, instead choosing to work quietly behind the scenes in various roles including treasurer, webmaster, database manager, and communications person for these organizations. Although he was not able to join us in person in Vancouver, Richard accepted the award by video-link during the Banquet Ceremony before being presented with his plaque in person today. Many thanks for your tireless years of devotion to diving and hyperbaric medicine in Canada, Richard!
