Gift of Life

By Stew Kernan

A Sudbury doctor has been recognized for his years of promoting organ and tissue donation at Health Sciences North.

Dr. Martin Shine was presented with a Donor Champion Award by the Trillium Gift of Life Network.

Dr. Shine says there is good reason why Sudbury has some of the highest rates of people registered to be an organ and tissue donors.

In 2014 five of the top 10 donor communities in Ontario were located in Greater Sudbury…Garson, Hanmer, Lively, Sudbury and Val Caron.
