Susan Denburg's many contributions to McMaster University and the broader Hamilton community were recognized this week by Na'amat Canada (Hamilton) during its third annual Women of Inspiration gala at Beth Jacob Synagogue.

One of four local women honoured, Denburg, associate vice-president, academic for the Faculty of Health Sciences, has fostered initiatives that enhance innovative interdisciplinary health-related research and educational programs across the university. She was instrumental in the expansion and distribution of the undergraduate medical program, the launch and expansion of other health professional programs, and the creation of a Faculty-wide initiative to support continuing professional development to meet the needs of a diverse faculty.

Outside of McMaster, Denburg has been a driving force at Shalom Village, a residence and long term care facility, serving as president of its board of governors and being instrumental as the non-profit continues to meet the needs of older adults and the Jewish community.

Denburg has said she "likes working with people, envisioning future innovation, and being engaged in decision-making." Citing mentoring as the most satisfying component of her career, she says "I'm most proud of the relationships I've fostered".
