UBC School of Nursing Celebrates Landmark Professorship
On Thursday, November 2, 2017, the UBC School of Nursing and St. Paul’s Foundation were delighted to co-host a celebratory reception to recognize and thank the generous donors who helped to establish the ground-breaking St. Paul’s Hospital and Heart & Stroke Foundation Professorship in Cardiovascular Nursing at UBC.
Guests mingled at Sage Bistro for a cocktail reception, with the evening’s festitivites culminating in a toast to officially welcome Dr. Sandra Lauck as the professorship holder. The event was a wonderful opportunity for supporters to meet Dr. Lauck and discuss the impact that her work will have on cardiovascular nursing research, education, and practice in the years ahead.
Congratulations to Dr. Sandra Lauck, and a sincere thank you to all of the donors and project champions who contributed to raising $1,000,000 to make this vision a reality.
