Dr. Antoine (Tony) Hakim Honoured

An Ottawa neurologist has received a prestigious Canada Gairdner prize for his work on stroke prevention and treatment.

Dr. Antoine (Tony) Hakim received the award, which includes a $100-thousand cheque, at a ceremony in Toronto today.

Hakim, who is a professor at the University of Ottawa and works at the Ottawa Hospital, has helped revolutionize the analysis and treatment of strokes; both the signs a stroke is coming and the medicine to administer once a stroke has happened.

The Gairdner prize is often referred to as the “baby Nobel”.

Dr. Hakim is a member of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame.
