Friends of Health Sciences Award

The Faculty of Health Sciences annually recognizes an individual who exemplifies outstanding support of the mission and goals of the Faculty. The terms of reference are purposely defined broadly so as to encourage nominations from the rich variety of individuals who have directly or indirectly made a distinguished contribution to health education and research in the Faculty of Health Sciences.
The recipient may be selected from within the university or from the external community and nominators may be members of the university or the wider community of southern Alberta. Nominators should submit a brief letter outlining their reasons for selecting their candidate.

Nominations must be received by May 1st to be considered by the Committee for the coming year. Nominators are asked not to contact their nominee until the Committee has made its decision.
