In the citation, it was noted that Robinson “quickly developed the necessary scheduling, budgeting and staffing for her department in Prince Rupert so that she could travel to the village of Masset once each month to conduct an ultrasound clinic” after Haida Gwaii was facing the loss of ultrasound service. During the trips, she would typically see 15 patients per day to ensure everyone who needed ultrasound got it.
