Join us for a virtual reception on Friday, December 3, to congratulate this year's recipients of the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy's Wellspring Pharmacy Leadership Awards. Learn more about their exciting initiatives!

This year's Award recipients are:

  • Alyssa Aco, community pharmacist at Costco in Edmonton, Alberta, and lab facilitator at the University of Alberta. As part of the Quality Improvement Project, Alyssa will use the funds toward the design of a standard practice protocol to streamline glycemic management in home care.
  • Feng Chang, University of Waterloo, Ontario, is using her award to attend the “Media and Medicine Program: How to tell stories that make a difference” offered by Harvard Medical School.
  • Jane Ling, community pharmacist at North Durham Family Health team Pharmacist in Ontario and President of Pharmacists for a Smoke Free Canada, will develop a no-cost virtual Lower Risk Nicotine Use Education Symposium for pharmacists.
  • James Morrison, Whole Health Pharmacy Partners, will use the Wellspring Award to support the completion of his Master of Science in Pharmacy at the University of Saskatchewan. His thesis evaluates whether educational institutions are evolving their curricula adequately to train students to provide care to the 2SLGBTQ+ population.

CFP established the Wellspring Pharmacy Leadership Awards to honour the legacy of Barbara A. Wells, an exceptional pharmacy leader and beloved colleague who passed away in June 2010. These annual awards recognize both demonstrated and potential leadership in individuals in the pharmacy profession. The cash award will allow recipients to further develop personal leadership through study, experiential learning, or mentorship.
