When Alicia Wheatley’s health issues were resolved, she was left with a strong desire to give back and help others as she was helped. She successfully applied to the Dalhousie School of Nursing in Yarmouth, and was helped along her journey by a scholarship awarded by the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation.
Alicia’s husband Mike helped her tell her story through this video. Thank you both!
Yarmouth Hospital Foundation (YHF) is excited to announce the creation of a new annual $5000 YHF Sara Corning Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity (EDI) Scholarship at Dalhousie University’s School of Nursing for students of under-represented backgrounds at the Yarmouth Campus, starting this fall.
In considering addressing the ongoing need for more nurses, Yarmouth Hospital Foundation has decided to develop an annual equity, diversity, and inclusivity scholarship. “With the current rising need of healthcare workers there is an opportunity for Yarmouth Hospital Foundation to create another Nursing Scholarship,” notes Board Chair Neil LeBlanc. “To do so in a way that can help those who have been disadvantaged over the years is an important way to honour Sara Corning’s legacy and to assist in our community.”
