TORONTO, ON – November 15, 2022, Lifemark Health Group is excited to announce the recipients of this year’s inaugural Lifemark Scholarships for Black and Indigenous Students: Fola Akpan and Kennedy Tralnberg! Fola and Kennedy are physiotherapy students currently pursuing their Masters in programs at Dalhousie University and University of Alberta, respectively.
The Lifemark Scholarships for Black and Indigenous Students were created to support diversity within the occupational therapy and physiotherapy professions. These scholarships represent an important step forward in our efforts to address existing barriers and challenges and increase accessibility to the healthcare profession for underrepresented communities.
The annual scholarships are available to students from our Black and Indigenous communities and provide financial support in the form of a $5,000 award for those pursuing post-secondary learning in a recognized Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy Master's program in Canada.
