The James H. Doerr Award was established in honour of Jim Doerr upon his retirement from Douglas College in 1995. Jim was the Dean of Community Programs and Services at Douglas College for many years and the award was created in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Continuing Education at Douglas College and his belief in lifelong learning. The Natural Health & Healing fund was established in 2001 when Douglas College co-sponsored a presentation by Deepak Chopra. The fund was to support British Columbia residents who were enrolled in Health Science Continuing Education courses. In 2010, the James H. Doerr Award & Natural Health & Healing Fund were combined with the purpose of recognizing and supporting students enrolled in any Health Sciences Continuing Education (HS - CE) program or course at Douglas College.
