Congratulations to Dr. Wanda Thomas Bernard on her appointment to the Canadian Senate. Dr. Bernard is a member of NSHRF’s Decade Club, which recognizes individuals, whose support and contributions over a 10 year period have helped to establish the NSHRF as a leading health research foundation.
Dr. Bernard’s long relationship with the NSHRF began in 2002, when she received a capacity building grant to develop a proposal to examine the effects of individual and systemic violence on African Nova Scotians. Her proposal was subsequently awarded a $240,000 grant from the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health.
Dr. Bernard was also a member of the inaugural NSHRF Research Advisory Committee and served on the committee until 2011. Her dedication and guidance helped to shape Nova Scotia’s current health research enterprise and confidently informed the decisions of the NSHRF.
The NSHRF is thrilled for Dr. Bernard; she will continue to make great contributions to Nova Scotians and to all Canadians in her new role.
