"I would like to thank CPA’s Awards Committee for this honour that bears the name of Enid Graham an extraordinary individual who had a profound impact on the inception and maturation of our profession. Here are a few things I learned about this remarkable person: (1) she studied massage and medical gymnastics in Heidelberg; (2) she was a member of the Voluntary Aid Detachment during World War I; (3) was a founding member of CPA; (4) established training schools in Montreal and Toronto; and (5) lobbied that physiotherapists should be given officer rank in the military which they received in 1940. She was truly a remarkable person."
