2023 Dr. Marnie Hinton Resident Wellness Award - Presented by Office of Resident Affairs and Physician Wellness

Dr. Marnie Hinton was a long-time Alberta physician, trained in Great Britain, who dedicated her life to physician health. She initially volunteered her time through the early days of the Alberta Physician Assistance Program, then became more formally involved as a triage physician with the Physician and Family Support Program of Alberta.

Dr. Hinton worked for many years at an Edmonton hospital site caring for an adult population with multiple issues focused on intellectual and concurrent severe behavioral challenges. She was known for her stamina and persistence with this often very challenging population.
