Read about Jannah in Health Sciences Matters magazine.
This year’s recipient of the FHS Young Alumni Award has dedicated herself to improving human health around the globe since leaving Western in 2008 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree. As a student leader, she was heavily involved in Students’ Council initiatives and helped found the FHS Dream Team, which is dedicated to funding the wishes of children facing life-threatening illnesses.
She has held positions with the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation and the World Health Organization, and earned a master’s degree from the London School of Economics. More recently, she spent three years working across Africa to improve maternal health and newborn survival rates. And if that wasn’t enough, just this month she enrolled at the University of Toronto and is pursuing a PhD in social and behavioural health sciences.
It is my privilege to introduce this year’s recipient of the Faculty of Health Sciences Young Alumni Award, Jannah Wigle.
