2018 Medavie Scholarship Recipients

The Medavie Scholarship honours Pierre-Yves Julien, the former CEO of Medavie, who believed that improving the lives of those impacted by chronic conditions doesn’t start at the doctor’s office, but in our homes and community centres, and on our playgrounds. For 2018, we’re pleased to award scholarships to three individuals who are determined to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
