Born and raised in Newfoundland and Labrador, Dr. Furey is a passionate orthopaedic trauma surgeon and educator with Memorial University’s School of Medicine. He also holds a Diploma in Organizational Leadership from Oxford University. His strong work ethic has earned him many local, provincial, and national awards and honours. He was named Humanitarian of the Year by the Canadian Red Cross and earned the Governor General of Canada’s Meritorious Service Cross.
In 2010, he helped create Team Broken Earth to provide medical relief after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. This Newfoundland and Labrador-born charity has since expanded in size and scope.
