Hospitals should reflect the communities they serve.
The QEII Foundation Diversity in Health Care Bursary supports students who identify as African Nova Scotian/Black, Indigenous, Racialized, Immigrant, 2SLGBTQIA+, experiencing physical, cognitive or learning limitations that impact activities of daily living – or have intersectionality of these identities.
While pursuing their dreams in health care, students are helping create a more robust healthcare system that is representative of Nova Scotian communities.
“Thank you very much for choosing me as a recipient of the 2022 Diversity in Health Care Bursary. As an Indigenous woman in healthcare, it’s amazing to have this support from the QEII Foundation. Thank you for believing in me!”
