Local doctor Camilla Buchanan received a Salute to Service award this weekend.

The Medical Society of Virginia Foundation (MSV Foundation) has given a local doctor a Salute to Service Award.

Williamsburg doctor Camilla Buchanan received the Service to the International Community award from the MSV Foundation this weekend. The annual Salute to Service Awards, created in 2004, recognize the outstanding efforts of those dedicated to creating and nurturing a caring health promotion and disease prevention environment for patient everywhere.

Buchanan visits Kenya, where she volunteers to work with the Maasai tribe, at least once a year. Read a previous story on her volunteer efforts here.

“The voluminous work done by this select handful of people to advance patient care here in Virginia and abroad is almost indescribable,” said Susan Motley, executive director, MSV Foundation.

“I am amazed at the personal sacrifices they have made and the challenges they have overcome to ensure patients have access to quality care. They have done this both by serving on the front lines by providing clinical care and behind the scenes by advancing the profession through education and the development of key statewide initiatives.”

The 2012 Salute to Service Awards are sponsored by Optima and Sentara, in partnership with The Doctors Company Foundation and The Medical Society of Virginia Alliance (MSVA). The MSV Foundation presented the 2012 Salute to Service Awards at this year’s Physicians’ Gala, held in conjunction with the MSV Annual Meeting at the Williamsburg Lodge on Nov. 3.

The MSV Foundation advances opportunities for physicians to participate in health improvement efforts in Virginia, and supports educational programs for physicians and the public.

    Good point, Nancy Carnegie. We have added a note on her work in Africa and a link to a story on that.

    It would be more meaningful to give us particular information as to exactly what Camilla is doing – her efforts not only here but also in Africa are certainly worth writing more about. Cheers…..

    It’s great to see someone who has given so much of her time and energy be recognized. She is not only an outstanding doctor but a role model. We are very lucky to have her in the Williamsburg community.
