Award Recipient

Courtland Fox

Anita George Nursing Award

One of my passions for my future nursing career, is to contribute to eliminating the inequity of healthcare in First Nations communities. Since, I grew up in a First Nations community myself, I saw first hand, the lacking in healthcare that First Nations communities face.
I also believe that there is a need for more First Nations healthcare providers that are culturally aware that can create culturally safe environments for First Nations clients. By doing this, I hope I can be a role model to others to pursue a healthcare career and further education to creating a sufficient healthcare system for future First Nations generations. As a young mother, I also believe it’s important to pursue higher education as a First Nations person because we are able to help our communities through our careers by educating ourselves while integrating our culture and traditions.
