Amanda Carey honoured with Dr. Ron Stewart Award for Student Leadership in Global Health

amandaCongratulations from the entire team at the Collaborating Centre to Amanda Carey, this year’s recipient of the Dr. Ron Stewart Award for Student Leadership in Global Health, as awarded by the Dalhousie Global Health Office. The award is given to a student from one of Dalhousie’s health profession faculties who has shown extraordinary leadership in global health, as well as a commitment to improving the health of marginalized communities, throughout their studies.

A fourth year nursing student at Dalhousie, Amanda has made important contributions to the work of the WHO/PAHO Collaborating Centre on Health Workforce Planning & Research over a number of years. Beyond her work with the Collaborating Centre, Amanda has also demonstrated her passion for global health through her participation in the Global Health Office Summer Programs in Tanzania, and her on-going involvement with the Nova Scotia Gambia Association. After graduation, Amanda will be pursuing her nursing career with the Capital District Health Authority here in Halifax.

Although Amanda’s achievements are exceptional, it is her integrity, tireless work-ethic, enthusiasm for learning and kindness which make her truly unique and a valued member of the WHOCC team. Congratulations again, Amanda!
