CISUR Scientist and Nursing professor Dr. Bernie Pauly has won the 2021 Canadian Public Health Association's Ron Draper Health Promotion Award.

The annual award is presented to someone “who has made a significant contribution to health promotion by working in the community to build healthy public policy, create environments that support health, enable community action, enhance personal skills, and/or re-orient health services.”  The CPHA describes Bernie as “a force for change, with an unwavering commitment to health equity and social justice” and says she “embodies all of the values of the Ron Draper Health Promotion Award and is most deserving of the recognition.”
