2018 Morgan Awards Announcement
2018 Morgan Medal Project
I am honoured to have been chosen for the National Morgan Medal award in honour of Susan Morgan. As a graduate student pursuing further dietetic research, it was very meaningful to me have my research experience recognized by the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research. I believe it is essential to have members of our professional community actively engaged in health research so that we can further contribute to our body of knowledge and the dietetic profession. Research is continually informing dietetic practice and ultimately helps us better understand how we can work together to help our clients. As a dietitian and a doctoral student, I look forward to strengthening my research skills and working with others during my future involvement in dietetic research.
The Morgan Awards Program is offered annually to commend and encourage dietetic interns and practicum students in honour and memory of the late Susan Morgan. The awards are presented as recognition of individual personal achievement by a dietetic intern or practicum student for their completed research project.
