Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Health Services and its partners have awarded $52,750 in scholarships to support the pursuit of higher education and to advance health-care practice and knowledge in Newfoundland and Labrador. Scholarships were awarded to 24 employees, 21 dependants of staff and two Quality Healthcare award recipients.

“On behalf of NL Health Services, I would like to extend congratulations to the 47 individuals who were awarded scholarships this year,” said David Diamond, CEO of NL Health Services. “Receiving these scholarships is a testament to your hard work, commitment, and potential to make a significant impact in the field of health care. As future leaders, your drive and determination will undoubtedly contribute to the advancement of our industry and the well-being of our communities.”

A variety of scholarships are available each year to staff, dependants of staff and eligible post-secondary students within NL Health Services. This year, scholarships were provided by NL Health Services, the Health Care Foundation, the General Hospital Sports and Social Club, the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre Auxiliary and the Sister Mary Fabian Hennebury Scholarship Fund.

“NL Health Services recognizes that our employees are our most valuable asset,” said Debbie Molloy, NL Health Services Vice President – Human Resources. “Their dedication, talent, and passion drive our success and growth. We are committed to investing in their success, and providing all our employees with an environment in which learning and advancement is paramount.”

NL Health Services also presented two Quality Healthcare Scholarships, available to both internal and external applicants. The recipients of these scholarships, valued at $6,500 each, are Carlee Rayne Seiler and Julie Dwyer.

Carlee Rayne Seiler is a Master of Health Ethics candidate at Memorial University. Carlee will be completing research on moral and ethical obligations to the Two-Spirit, transgender, non-binary, and gender-diverse community. Carlee is hoping to address the moral status of concerns such as the definition of medically necessary gender-affirming care, as well as the moral status of challenges of access to education, resources, and care for this community as it is comprised in part by youth distinctly below the age of medical consent.

Julie Dwyer is a PhD Candidate at Memorial University. Julie is writing to underscore the importance of addressing chronic pain within the framework of quality processing in Newfoundland and Labrador health systems and to emphasize its profound implications for ethical standards, disclosure practices, and patient safety.
