Award Recipient

Linda-Ann Elobuike

Tylenol Bacc Award

 As an immigrant starting over is never easy. However, I decided to go all in and pursue my childhood dream of becoming a nurse. As a young child, my life was upended due to a medical situation in my family, and I saw firsthand the importance of a good healthcare system. Still, more importantly, I saw the difference a good nurse makes in a patient’s health outcome. And so, after arriving in Canada four years ago, I decided to become a nurse with my family’s support. This decision has been pivotal in my life, and as we navigate healthcare in a pandemic world, the importance of the nursing profession can not be overemphasized.

Currently, I am involved in health care planning in my community. Our work consists in enhancing relationships in the community by establishing and maintaining relationships with local health foundations, non-profit organizations in health and human services, post-secondary institutions and other community networks/organizations that are knowledgeable on community service needs, ensuring that members have access to quality health services, whether they live within urban, rural or isolated regions.

I am honoured to be the recipient of the Tylenol® Fund to Advance Diversity in Nursing and Health Equity Research Scholarship via the Canadian Nurses Foundation. I hope to inspire my daughter and other immigrants like me to pursue their dreams because their dreams are valid.
