Several members of our Dal Health community were recognized at the second annual Dalhousie Legacy Awards ceremony on June 19. Now in its second year, the Legacy Awards brings the Dal community together to recognize the accomplishments of colleagues in a variety of areas including teaching, research, service, and health and safety.

The event features more than 20 different recognition awards from across the university into a single event. The awards are selected for their alignment with the university’s strategic priorities.

“The Legacy Awards ceremony was created to bring us together as a community to say a special thank you to our faculty and staff," said Jasmine Walsh, assistant vice-president of Human Resources at Dal. "The awards are given to employees who have been identified this year as going above and beyond in their work and the community."
