Donalda MacIsaac, Office Manager, CIOE-FM, 97.5, Vice President of Black Beauty Culture Association
 
Donalda MacIsaac, a health advocate and community volunteer in Lower Sackville, spoke at our Rotary Club meeting this morning concerning diversity in our health care system and being part of the creation of Diversity in Health Care Bursaries by Nova Scotia Health in 2015 and funded by the QEII Foundation since 2018.
 
Her passion for health care grew from personal experience caring for loved ones. To help make a difference for her family and her community, she started by becoming involved with the Cobequid Community Health Board (CHB) in Lower Sackville.  Then as part of the creation of the Diversity in Health Care Bursaries.
 
The Diversity in Health Care Bursaries are dedicated to students from diverse backgrounds studying in health care.   The $1,000 bursary is earmarked for African Nova Scotians, Indigenous peoples, immigrants, people with disabilities and 2sLGBTQ+ students.  Bursary recipients commit to seeking employment in the Nova Scotia Health Authority’s Central Zone.  Since 2018, the QEII Foundation has provided Diversity in Health Care Bursaries to 58 post-secondary students studying in a healthcare field.
 
Thank you Donalda for a riveting and heartfelt look into diversity in our health care system and the Diversity in Health Care Bursaries program.  For information on the Bursaries program, visit the QEII FOUNDATION website at https://qe2foundation.ca/current-priorities/diversity-health-care-bursaries.

Adopt-A-Highway - Rotary Club of Sackville and Area held their 10th bi-annual cleanup from Exit 1K to Fultz House on Oct. 31st. Arranged by Sue Paynter and with 10 Rotarians and Friends of Rotary, 13 full bags of garbage plus other various items were cleared from view and sent to their proper disposal sites. With regular attention and effort, it makes for a cleaner, environmentally friendlier Lower Sackville, our community.
 
 
 
This morning our Rotary meeting had a very special guest speaker, Dr. Lisa Richard. She favoured us with unique stories and original songs (new single "Uniforms") and some old favourites. She also gave us insight in how COVID has changed her life. Extremely uplifting morning. We would like to thank her for taking the time to enhance our day.
