A doctor in the house

On June 7, 2016, the University of Calgary awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree to Christine McIver, our founder and chief executive officer, for her outstanding service to children and families affected by childhood cancer.The honorary PhD is the University of Calgary’s highest academic honour and recognizes individuals whose achievements and community service deserve acknowledgment. Kids Cancer Care would not be able to serve Alberta children and families without you and your ongoing support, so we consider the honour a mutual honour, shared with you. After receiving the honorary degree, Christine gave the convocation address to thousands of students graduating from the faculties of education, social work and environmental design.
