In 2017, Shelagh received the inaugural Women Leaders in Digital Health Award. This award was created to celebrate the top 10 female visionaries who are harnessing the power of IT to transform health and health care in Canada.

I have had the pleasure of working with Shelagh on the planning of many e-Health Conferences and her commitment to providing an excellent, value-for-money conference to our members has always been paramount. She is a recognized leader who has made an impact.  She is an excellent role model, especially for young women in the field.
