Showcasing Success: CNIW Foundation’s Travel Award Empowers Student Achievements at National Conferences

The CNIW Foundation is thrilled to provide an update on the progress and success of our inaugural Travel Award recipients following their participation in key national conferences. This award, initiated to support students in presenting their work at significant forums, underscores our commitment to advancing health research and education, particularly within immigrant and vulnerable communities.

This year, our four distinguished awardees had the opportunity to showcase their research and findings, making substantial contributions to their fields and garnering recognition at national levels. The experiences of Matin Shairati and Nan Lei, both MSc students from the Division of Population Health and Applied Health Sciences at Memorial University, were highlighted at the 2024 Canadian Public Health Association annual conference held in Halifax, NS. Their presentations addressed crucial public health issues and showcased innovative solutions to ongoing health challenges.
