Georgia Dewart Receives 2015 Sanofi Pasteur Canadian Nurses Foundation Scholarship

Every year, Sanofi Pasteur works in collaboration with the Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) to award a $5,000 scholarship to a nursing student who is studying in the area of public health. The winner of the 2015-2016 Sanofi Pasteur Limited Scholarship in Public and Community Health Award is Georgia Dewart of the University of Alberta.

Georgia is researching ways to improve access to health services and prenatal care. Thanks to the Sanofi Pasteur/CNF scholarship, Georgia hopes to expand her skills and knowledge in both research methodology and community-based harm reduction, ultimately to help foster equitable access to health care across Canada for women and vulnerable populations.

Sanofi Pasteur appreciates the critical role nurses play in public health – both in terms of patient care and delivery of health services. Support of nursing research and education is an important way to further their development and recognize the essential work they do.
