Our 2015 Scholarship Winner!
Alexandra Sirois is a fourth year health promotion student at Laurentian University, who is currently completing her final year at McGill University as a visiting student. She was given several internship opportunities within the field of rheumatology in Montreal that could not be matched in Sudbury. This speaks to the drive and determination that Alex has. Changing schools, moving so far away from family and friends, not even arthritis will deter her from accomplishing her goals.
After Alex graduates she will continue her studies either at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine or with a master’s at Laurentian or McGill with a thesis related to rheumatology. One of the projects she has applied to is associated with Dr. Feldman’s Hemophilia Joint Score project at SickKids.
Alex hopes one day to work with scholarship namesake Dr. Bonnie Cameron in a few years while completing her elective rotations or her fellowship!
It’s our hope to contine supporting indefatigable scholars like Alex as they achieve great things while living with Arthritis.
