Derrick Cameron

Congratulations, Derrick Cameron!

Strait Richmond Palliative Care Society is happy to nominate Derrick Cameron as their 2023 Volunteer of the Year.

Derrick first became involved with the Strait Richmond Palliative Care Society when he attended our meetings as a representative of the Community Health Board Volunteer group. He was impressed with the advocacy work the Society was doing to promote optimal Palliative Care in the Strait Area. When his term on the Community Health Board ended, he became a member of the Society.

Derrick continues to be a very effective and active member of the Board of the Strait Richmond Palliative Care Society. His caring for and enthusiasm in advocating for the rights of Palliative patients and their families is inspiring. He has been Board Chair for the past four years.

With Derrick as chair, the society has continued to strive, in collaboration with the Nova Scotia Health Palliative Care Team in the Strait Richmond area to enhance the care, comfort and quality of life for patients while they are living in their own homes or in hospital. Derrick participates in and supports advocacy for palliative patients in Strait Richmond and South Inverness to have equitable access to the best possible and culturally sensitive palliative care both for patients and their families.

Derrick accepted the demanding, challenging and time-consuming role as Chair of the Society four years ago. His leadership skills and dedication to supporting palliative care services ensure that monthly, executive and special meetings run smoothly and respectfully with positive results.

Thank you and Congratulations, Derrick!
