Peace River paramedic Tynne Lunn has been recognized as a healthcare hero in a new video launched April 15.
Lunn, an Advanced and Community Care Paramedic, is the recipient of the 2020 RhPAP Rhapsody Health Care Hero Award in recognition for the exceptional work she has done for her patients and profession.
The video celebrating her award follows Lunn through her work day as she visits patients in the community, administering medicine and working with police to help someone in a mental health crisis. It also shows her spending quality time with her daughter, Ava, on a bike ride through the community.
“I may be the one featured in this video, but it highlights the innovative work of my paramedic colleagues all across Alberta and allied progressive paramedic peers in other provinces across Canada,” Lunn says.
“Paramedicine is healthcare. I am grateful to the Rural Health Professions Action Plan team for showcasing the capabilities of our profession through this award.”
Lunn says she is grateful for the love and support of her family, friends and community.
“I am better in the work I do because of you all.”
Since 2002, the Rhapsody Awards have celebrated the individuals, teams, and communities that make significant civic and health-care contributions within rural Alberta.
The video is available to watch on Facebook on the Rural Health Professions Action Plan page.
