TVO is pleased to announce that Dr. Nana Barnor, a TVO Board Member since 2009, has been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. This distinguished award honours significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. Dr. Barnor is a distinguished Toronto-based pediatrician. Active in the local Ghanaian community, Barnor was involved in the formation of the Association of Ghanaian Canadians, becoming the organization's first Vice President and then Acting President. She volunteered with the University of Toronto Summer Mentorship Program, hosting students from marginalized backgrounds and helping them gain knowledge about careers in medicine and science. In 2003, Dr. Barnor was recognized with the Ghanaian Canadian Achievement Award for Professional Excellence. “Dr. Barnor is a distinguished, civic-minded individual who shares TVO’s commitment to building citizen engagement and stronger communities in Ontario,” said Lisa de Wilde, Chief Executive Officer. “We’re delighted to see her work recognized in this way.”
