Congratulations to Stephanie Plastina and Terence Boateng, the 2017 Mikey Network award recipients from the Ryerson University School of Nutrition!
Each year The Mikey Network awards a scholarship grant for students at the Ryerson University School of Nutrition, to recognize academic excellence and a commitment to the promotion of nutrition to prevent chronic heart diseases.
This year the award was presented to the students by Dr Nick Bellissimo, on behalf of The Mikey Network. Each of the students was asked what this award meant to them. Here is what they had to say:
” I feel honored to have received an award that highlights such an important cause. The study of nutrition is grounded in prevention to build a better and healthier society. To be apart of this is the greatest reward of all”
– Stephanie Plastina
“I am honored to be awarded this scholarship for my work in the promotion of nutrition to prevent chronic disease. This has been a passion of mine throughout my undergraduate experience and having an award tailor-made to this passion is both humbling and inspiring. Thank you so much to The Mikey Network organization for all the excellent work that they do and through this award I hope to further promote a healthy and active lifestyle.”
– Terence Boateng
Congratulations, Stephanie and Terence! We hope that this award is just one of the first steps in helping you to make the world a healthier place!
