May 25 2013
On May 25, Senator Larry Campbell presented the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal to Dr. Paula Gordon, Medical Director, BC Women's Hospital Breast Health Program, for her work and involvement in Breast Imaging, and in recognition of her work on the Board of Canucks for Kids fund.

A new commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians will be recognized.
