2022 Extraordinary Service Award Winner

Chandra Farrer

This award recognizes the contributions an AHPA member has made in advancing the mission, vision, and goals of our organization.  This year’s awardee is Chandra Farrer, in recognition of her extraordinary contributions as the Advocacy Co-Chair for the ACPAC SIG and for her role as Vice-Chair of the Ontario Rheumatology Association’s Northern Ontario Committee. 

Chandra, as co-chair of these committees, articulates a clear and consistent vision to support the work of their innovative agendas. Chandra holds a Master of Science in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety but more importantly she demonstrates a professional mastery of this knowledge in quality improvement initiatives.  She is organized, purposeful and thoughtful.  She is a natural leader and is well respected by her peers.  Chandra has dedicated many volunteer hours to her advocacy roles.  This work supports the vision of the AHPA of improving the lives of people living with Arthritis.
