Awarded to Dr. Timothy Cuddy  from the Burlington Clinical Education Campus. “He would love when I’d show interest in a subject area and quickly pull a book out of his bookcase to let me read it to further stimulate my learning. I really felt he valued me as a learner. Created a space for me in his office to write my patient notes. Taught me the ‘business’ side of medicine.”
