Tribute to Dr. Steve Senior will fund continuing education
Honoring the memory of a dedicated family physician and his service to our community, the Health Services Foundation, in partnership with Primary Health Care Services of Peterborough (PHCSP) will pay tribute to Dr. Steve Senior, Saturday, October 26 at the Canadian Canoe Museum.
“We are honored to preserve Steve’s memory and carry on the legacy of one of our community’s most beloved doctors,” says Dr. Don Harterre, Physician Lead, PHCSP.
“An exemplary physician, Steve was committed to delivering exceptional, comprehensive and compassionate health care to his patients. His contribution to continuing medical education in Peterborough is legendary.”
The tribute to Dr. Senior starts at 7:00 p.m at the Canoe Museum at 910 Monaghan Road in Peterborough. The Indian River band, featuring family physician Dr. Dan Houpt, will provide music and entertainment.
Tickets are $125 per person and capacity is limited to 170 attendees. To learn more, make a donation, or share a memory of Dr. Senior go to www.drstevesenior.ca.
Proceeds from the tribute will go to the Dr. Steve Senior Memorial Fund to honor the memory of this dedicated family physician and his service to our community.
The idea for the fund originated at the suggestion of Dr. Peter MacLoghlin, a retired family physician. Peter was interested in doing something significant to honour Dr. Senior’s memory and approached the Foundation to develop this fund.

It consists of five teams which include over 80 physicians and over 80 full and part-time allied health professionals including nurse practitioners, mental health clinicians, pharmacists, nurses, dietitians, occupational therapist and administrative staff working collaboratively to provide comprehensive primary care across the City and County of Peterborough.
