We wish to congratulate Dr. Pierre-Paul Tellier, Associate Professor of the Department of Family Medicine, for receiving the Honorary Scarlet Key from the McGill Alumni Association. The Scarlet Key Society began in 1925 as the official host and guide for dignitaries and special guests visiting the University. In 1938, a parallel organization called the Red Wing Society was established for female students, which later joined the Scarlet Key Society in 1971. The Society has since revised its constitution to focus on three main goals: recognition of leadership, service to the University and the greater community, and maintaining an organized Society for its members.
