The award recognizes students completing their second year of medical school, who demonstrate leadership through community involvement, superior interpersonal and communication skills, academic excellence and an established interest in advancing knowledge.

Born and raised in Edmonton, Daniel completed his Bachelor of Science with a focus in Microbiology and Immunology at UBC. As an undergraduate he was the president of the Microbiology Student Association and was chosen as the student representative to address his faculty and peers at their science faculty graduation ceremony.

As a UBC medical student, Daniel has been an active member of the Global Health Initiative, where he straddled both the engineering and medical teams, formulating a clean water and health assessment of a remote village with the goals of research deployment in India. During his career, Daniel intends to bridge the gap between those with deep understandings of medical problems, and those with the capacity to help solve them.
