It is my goal to bring equitable health services to my personal First Nation and other communities across NW Ontario. Although this will be a long journey ahead, it becomes possible with the support of generous donors such as yourself.” Madison Peterson-Kowal, recipient of the John Andrews Award in Medicine

“Thank you for believing in me, in the program and everything that NOSM has to offer the future physicians of Northern Ontario. I am incredibly thankful for this amazing gift.” April Kindratm recipient of the F. Jean MacLeod Bursary

One day I hope to follow your example and invest in the training of future doctors who stand where I once stood.” Janie Penhearow, recipient of the David John Malysh Memorial Bursary
