Honouring a Nurse’s Impact

There’s a story behind every bursary and the one behind the Marion & Frances Kadish Bursary is of love and devotion to family. Sid and Elaine Kadish established this bursary in 2013 to honour Sid’s mother and sister. The Kadish family know that nurse’s like Sid’s mother make a difference in so many lives. As a patient at St. Peter’s Hospital, Sid’s sister appreciated the care and compassion provided by her health care team.

Looking for a way to honour his mother and sister, Sid and his wife Elaine decided to make a donation to the nursing program here at Mohawk. Sid and Elaine’s daughter Tracey, works at Mohawk College and “supporting the nursing students here felt like a good fit for our family,” Sid said.

Excited about the advancements in training that are happening at the Institute for Applied Health Sciences campus, Sid and Elaine are inspired by these bursary recipients and are encouraged to do more.
