A Better World Afghanistan Project Manager Azalea Lehndorff was awarded the Canadian Medical Association National Award for Young Leaders last night. This award recognizes medical student leadership and service, something that Azalea passionately dedicates her life to. An excited group was present at the ceremony and banquet in the Vancouver Convention Center to cheer Azalea on as she received the award—Gord and Kathy Bontje, Eric Rajah, and Gail Misek have known Azalea for years as they have worked together on the 100 Classroom Project in Afghanistan.
