07.04.12 Reza Yousefi-Nooraie has been awarded a 2012 CIHR Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Reza recently transferred to the HRM PhD program and works with Dr. Maureen Dobbins as his supervisor. A story is posted at http://dailynews.mcmaster.ca/story.cfm?id=9039 . This is a prestigious award, requiring nominations from the University, and this is a tremendous accomplishment for Reza, who studies the role of professional networks in knowledge translation for public health. HRM has recently established a strong record of nominations for this award, with two outstanding nominees and one winner in each of the past two years. Please join me in congratulating Reza.
