2019 Preventative Healthcare Post-Secondary Scholarship Winners

Scholarship 2019

This year Copeman Healthcare was excited to award our second annual post-secondary scholarship. In 2019 we increased the grants to three worthy students in British Columbia and Alberta.

We were delighted to see the quantity and quality of great applications across both provinces. 130 students wrote short essays on how they hope to impact preventative healthcare in their careers. Six students were shortlisted in each province, and we are confident that they, along with many of our other applicants, will make a difference in their communities as they enter the workforce.

 

2019 Winners

Our winners thought outside the box, wrote creatively, and offered tangible solutions to preventative healthcare. They didn’t simply define the issues, but discussed what steps they were taking in their program and how they could be carried forward into their careers.

Please come back to our resource pages over the coming weeks to see the essays from our shortlist. We will begin with our winners, Ilyana Voth, a first-year medical student from UBC, Melissa Wan, a fourth-year medical student from UBC and Michael Duncan, who is just finishing his Master of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta. Congratulations to our winners, and to everyone who put effort into their writing.

Below is a listed of short-listed students in alphabetical order, followed by school, program, and intended year of graduation. We wish you all the best of luck in your education and future careers!
