Lanaudière resident Rachèle Madison awarded Bursary
Rachèle Madison, who is completing her studies at the Université de Montréal in order to become a licensed nurse-practitioner, was awarded a $10,000 Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary by the Board of Directors of ECOL. This bursary is a component of McGill University’s Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project.
The overall objective of this project is to increase the number of health and social services technicians and professionals able to meet the needs of the English-speaking people in Quebec’s regions. The bursary is intended to provide financial incentive to students from selected Quebec regions with appropriate English and French language skills pursuing full-time studies in the area of health and social services in a government recognized educational institution located outside their region. Students who are awarded bursaries must commit to returning to a Quebec region following the successful completion of their studies to work for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or related organization.
Rachèle plans to continue living and working in Lanaudière for many years to come. She has raised a family here and loves the region. Her practical work experiences in the sphere of mental health, in health services in correctional establishments and in the rural nursing project to reach seniors in their own homes have given her a rich experience in accompanying some of the most vulnerable members of society. ECOL is pleased to encourage her in pursuing her studies so that her professional services will benefit the English-speaking community of Lanaudière.
