RVH celebrates student excellence

Outstanding Service Awards and the MY CARE Student Award of Excellence presented

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) has celebrated student excellence at the health centre.

“At RVH we have always made it a priority to provide educational and research opportunities for students from high school age to university master’s degree level, nursing students and medical residents and we have many students who volunteer with our ‘Blue Brigade’,” says Janice Skot, RVH president and CEO.

Five students received an Outstanding Service Award and the MY CARE Student Award of Excellence – the highest student honour at RVH.

The winners of the MY CARE Student Award of Excellence are Jasmine Howatt, Eastview Secondary School, Tyler Mitchell, Barrie North Collegiate Institute, Maya Moore, Nottawasaga Pines Secondary School, Caitlin Stevens, St. Joseph’s Secondary School, and Ajmain Yar, St. Joseph’s Secondary School.

In addition, Ryan Khosrovaneh, a student at Eastview Secondary school, has been named the Auxiliary’s $1,000 scholarship winner. Khosrovaneh is a dedicated RVH volunteer in the health centre’s Hospital Elder Life Program, Surgery inpatient units and the Cardiac and Renal program. He will be attending Queen’s University in Kingston to study medicine in the fall.

“The RVH Auxiliary is thrilled to honour student excellence, and Ryan’s dedication to his studies alongside his contributions to his extracurricular activities and volunteer service make him an outstanding candidate for our scholarship award,” says Lise McCourt, president of the RVH Auxiliary.
