The Stettler Health Foundation has awarded the 2023 Dr. Lynne McKenzie Memorial Scholarships.
Jacques DuToit, Camelia Ursu and Johan Bouwer are this year’s recipients of the memorial scholarships, each receiving $3,000.
These scholarships are awarded to dedicated students who are currently enrolled in medical school and will be pursuing a career in rural Alberta.
Dr. McKenzie was a physician in East Central Alberta and served those communities until her retirement in 2016 and her untimely passing.
Dr. McKenzie will be remembered as a physician who advocated for all her patients and realized the historical need to attract quality medical professionals to the rural communities she so valued and dedicated her life to serving.
