Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Lampe Foun­da­tion will have two note­wor­thy “first-evers” at their an­nual awards evening on Thurs­day, May 23rd at Ho­tel Le Prési­dent at 20:00. The first Lampe-Til­lot­son Physi­cian’s Award will be awarded to Hat­ley na­tive Cheryl Brus Peter­son, a first year med­i­cal stu­dent at UdeS. The award is $5000 and is re­new­able for four years, a to­tal of $20,000. Dr. Pierre Cos­sette, Dean of the Fac­ulty of Medicine and Health Sciences, UdeS will present the Physi­cian’s award.

Sec­ond, four awards in Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ther­apy will be given. Two are from Lampe and two are from the Fac­ulty of Medicine and Health Sciences of UdeS. The pre­sen­ter is Dr. Manon Guay, who won the Lampe Foun­da­tion’s Jan and Diana Kuil­man Me­mo­rial award in 2007. She has a PhD in re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ther­apy and is very pleased to be a pre­sen­ter for Lampe.

It is a sig­nif­i­cant step and state­ment from the Lampe Foun­da­tion that fam­ily medicine and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ther­apy (keep­ing peo­ple in their homes) are im­por­tant pri­or­i­ties. Thanks to re­cent part­ner­ships with the Til­lot­son Coat­i­cook Re­gional Fund and the Fac­ulty of Medicine and Health Sciences at UdeS, Lampe is able to of­fer th­ese new health sec­tor awards.

On the May 23rd awards evening, sev­eral other schol­ar­ship and prize pre­sen­ta­tions will be made to stu­dents in vo­ca­tional train­ing cour­ses, CEGEP stud­ies and univer­sity pro­grams.
