Dr. Mohamed Ravalia, Family Physician and Dean of Rural Medical Education Network, Memorial University of Newfoundland

Zimbabwe is over 11,000 kilometers from Newfoundland and Labrador, but when Dr. Mohamed Ravalia arrived in Twillingate thirty years ago he felt right at home. His experience, coming from an environment of apartheid, led him to dedicate his career to equity in healthcare. He has practiced medicine in Twillingate for decades, and his work to advance rural medical education has led to many accolades, including his appointment to the Order of Canada in 2016. Mohamed is a dedicated mentor to students and a community leader who makes our province proud.
