Canadian Public Health Association

Dr. John Hastings Student Award

This award is named in honour and memory of Dr. Hastings and his commitment to and belief in students as the future of public health in our country. We identify the 10 top-rated student abstract submissions that will be presented at a special session at Public Health 2018, our annual conference.

These students compete with a 3-minute presentation based on their top-rated abstract followed by a 3-minute question and answer period. A panel of judges evaluate the presentations and present the highest ranked student with the award at the end of the session. 

The award is valued at $1,000 and the event is open to all student delegates.
