t is a great pleasure to announce that Ms. Jo-Ann Bader has received the Dean of Medicine Awards of Excellence. These awards are conferred upon individuals for performance above and beyond the call of duty, dedication and caring, creative problem-solving, initiative, motivation and contribution to boosting morale. When asked to share what has motivated her during the past 42 years at McGill, she laughs as she quotes Confucius: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
