Dr. Paul Fernyhough receives U of M Outreach Award

Fifteen staff members of the University of Manitoba were recognized for their outstanding community involvement through Outreach Awards at a reception on Nov. 21, 2007. This year, recipients include people who help immigrants adjust to life in Canada, educate the public about brain injury, promote Aboriginal literature, work with the institutionalized elderly, inner-city poor and the mentally challenged, use their expertise to help improve the lives of people in other parts of the world, and “jazz up” the University of Manitoba.

Dr Paul Fernyhough, Division of Neurodegenerative Disorders, received an award for developing the neuroscience lesson program within Winnipeg elementary and junior high schools, and for incorporating neuroscience components into the Manitoba Schools Science Symposium.
