Dr Nick Wright honoured in local hero awards
"This year's recipients are selfless, loving and dedicated people who have all impacted our community in unique ways."Gisborne Mayor Meng Foon.
Dr Nicholas Wright is Three Rivers Medical GP and graduate of the University of Otago Medical school. After hours, he works with Morgen Smith to run a plant-based lifestyle change programme in the community for groups of 20-30 patients per session.
The pair have run the programme for four years, achieving outstanding results that have been published in a range of journals.
Dr Wright is known for going the extra mile and has made a huge difference in many people's lives.
The heroes received their medals at a ceremony at the Bushmere Arms this week.
Mayor Meng Foon says "the positive difference they have made to the lives of others cannot be overstated. It's important we as a community take time to reflect and acknowledge the special place these people hold in our lives."
Three Rivers Medical staff and patients join Mr Foon in congratulating Dr Wright on the honour.
