A familiar face will return to the Sun Peaks Health Centre in 2020.

Dr. Signy Frank worked in the clinic as part of the University of British Columbia’s family medicine residency program in 2018. Now in mid-2020 she will return to the community for two years.

Frank, from Milton, Ont., studied at the medical school of the University of Limerick in Ireland before completing a masters degree at Queen’s University.

“I have been so fortunate to have completed my residency training in Sun Peaks,” Frank said. “Not only have I received excellent mentorship under Dr. Shane Barclay and Dr. Chip Bantock, but the Sun Peaks community has gone above and beyond to support me during my training. It has been such a good fit and I am thrilled that after graduation I will be joining the Sun Peaks Health Centre team as a permanent doctor on staff.

“I cannot wait to give back to the community that has so kindly taken me in as one of their own. The entire Thompson region has exceeded my expectations with unlimited adventures such as skiing, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking and so much more. I feel at home here and am looking forward to continuing to set down roots.”

Executive director Laura Bantock said they were thrilled to announce her re-joining the medical team.
