    Chris Power Leadership Development Fund

Supporting emerging and established healthcare leaders at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

Chris Power, president and CEO of the former Capital District Health Authority, is an inspiration to many with her strong leadership and communication skills. When Chris retired from the Health Authority, her friends and colleagues collaborated with the QEII Foundation to establish a fund to advance healthcare leadership at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

The Chris Power Leadership Development Fund supports and educates emerging and established healthcare leaders at the QEII Health Sciences Centre to learn, develop and advance health leadership practices.

Healthcare leaders at the QEII who are pursuing a recognized program, course or conference for advancing health leadership practices are invited to apply for one of these awards, up to $1,000 each.
