Announcing Our 2020 Negev Gala Honouree: Ted Lyons, O.C M.D.

October 3, 2019

The Jewish National Fund of Manitoba/Saskatchewan is thrilled to announce our 2020 Negev Gala Honouree: Ted Lyons, O.C M.D.

About the 2020 Negev Gala Honouree

Dr. Edward (Ted) A. Lyons: Graduated Medical School and Diagnostic Radiology from the University of Manitoba in 1973. Dr. Lyons is a globally renowned expert and the author of many articles, chapters, and books in the field of radiology. He is a pioneer in ultrasound research and his ground-breaking work helped to make ultrasound one of modern medicine’s most widely used diagnostic tools. He was also among the first to use this technology to detect blood clots and brain tumors. Dr. Lyons, an award-winning professor, was named Officer of the Order of Canada (O.C.) in July 2007, which recognizes a lifetime of achievement and merit of a high degree, especially in service to Canada or to humanity at large. He also is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012) and the Sol Kanee Distinguished Jewish Community Service Medal (2014).

Beyond his scientific contributions, Ted is a philanthropist and a public servant. He served in numerous leading roles both at the University and professional organizations and in our community. Dr. Lyons served as the President of the Canadian Association of Radiologists, President of Congregation Shaarey Zedek, President of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg and Chairman of the Board of the Saul & Claribel Simkin Centre, among other roles.
