Bergeron, director of the Centre de recherche en infectiologie (CRI) of Laval University, will receive the 2009 Canadian Medical Association's (CMA) Medal of Service. This medal is being presented in recognition of Dr. Bergeron's outstanding contribution to the medical profession, medical and research organizations, the Canadian health care system, and the well-being of patients around the world.

The CMA Medal of Service is awarded to an individual who has made an exceptional and outstanding contribution to the advancement of health care in Canada. Dr. Bergeron is an internationally renowned clinical researcher and specialist in infectious diseases.

"Thanks to Dr. Bergeron's remarkable work, thousands of patients have benefited from an improved quality of life. He has contributed concretely to the prevention and diagnosis of infectious diseases. Dr. Bergeron's accomplishments deserve our admiration," says CMA President Dr. Robert Ouellet.
