Dal receives $2.5M from Shoppers Drug Mart to support diversity with scholarships, research


Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Health has received a $2.5M gift from Shoppers Drug Mart that will enhance diversity in health education and support research that aligns with Nova Scotia’s health transformation agenda. $1.5M will be used to create undergraduate scholarships to reduce barriers for students who are Black Nova Scotians, Indigenous, or who are from New Glasgow and/or North Sydney and are studying in pharmacy, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy programs. $1M will support research on the larger role that pharmacists, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists have within the health system.
