BRIC NS, in conjunction with the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation, held a reception on September 20 to honour the recipients of the 2018 BRIC NS Student Research Award. The award is given annually to graduate students working in primary and integrated health care research to provide financial support while they complete a thesis-based project. Winners are chosen by a panel of reviewers based on the quality of the application, strength of the patient engagement and knowledge translation plans, and relevance to BRIC NS priorities.
The BRIC NS Student Research Award is just one of the ways that BRIC NS is working to build capacity in primary and integrated health care research. The Award is supplemental to the NSHRF Scotia Scholars competition and is open to students at any Nova Scotia University.
