The University of Manitoba celebrates Dr. Marcia Anderson, who was recently named Physician of the Year by Doctors Manitoba. The vice-dean of Indigenous health, social justice and anti-racism in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba is recognized for her service to Indigenous people and other communities. Throughout the pandemic, Cree-Anishinaabe alum Dr. Anderson has been a trusted voice on fighting COVID-19. From social media awareness videos and media appearances to weekly panel discussions through Winnipeg's Sunshine House, Dr. Anderson works around the clock, sharing helpful and accessible information about the virus. She does this while continuing to work in public health, seeing patients at Grace Hospital in the adult medicine clinic, and leading anti-racism and equity-focused work at the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences. Her work at UM includes developing strategies to implement the 94 Calls to Action and responding to the Scarborough Charter, which seeks to address anti-Black racism and promote Black inclusion in Canadian higher education. The University of Manitoba thanks Dr. Anderson for her outstanding and continuing contributions.
