A doctor in the North has received a prestigious honor.


Dr. Betty Spooner, of the La Ronge Medical Clinic, has been named Saskatchewan’s Family Physician of the Year.


As the current northern representative for the Saskatchewan Medical Association, Spooner works extensively on health issues affecting First Nations and local residents in Northern Saskatchewan.


She is originally from Elrose but has lived in La Ronge since 1975.


The group giving the award to Spooner says her dedication to patients, family, and the community are the reasons why she was chosen.
