DR. ANDREW FUREY is an orthopaedic surgeon and politician. He was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Dr. Furey’s dedication to medicine and philanthropy, which he attributes to the examples of his parents and family, led him to spearhead the non-profit organization Team Broken Earth in 2010, following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January of that year. Dr. Furey organized a task force of Canadian physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists to travel to the affected areas and offer medical support and training. Since that time, Team Broken Earth has grown to include teams all across the country. Dr. Furey also cofounded a mental health and addictions charity, A Dollar a Day. In August 2020, Dr. Furey was voted leader of the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador and the province’s fourteenth premier. He lives in St. John’s with his wife, Allison, and their three children.
