Donations sought to honour Dr. Gustave Gingras
© 1998 Canadian Medical Association
The Dalhousie University School of Occupational Therapy is seeking donations to establish an annual award commemorating the work of Dr. Gustave Gingras, a CMA past president who died in May 1996. The school hopes to award $1000 annually to a master of science student studying occupational therapy at Dalhousie. The money would enable the recipient to conduct thesis research on an international topic. A native of Montreal, Gingras was a pioneer in occupational therapy and physical rehabilitation. He worked around the world and helped found the original Rehabilitation Institute of Montreal in 1949. To establish an award in his name, the school must raise at least $20 000. Cheques payable to Dalhousie University, specifying the Dr. Gustave Gingras Award, can be sent to the School of Occupational Therapy, Dalhousie University, Halifax NS B3H 3H5.
