Elizabeth Sartini of Tiverton was selected as this year’s recipient of the Sandra M. Becas de Enfermería Cabral.
Ms. Sartini will receive a $2,000 award to further her nursing education at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, where she is a sophomore.
La beca, establecido en 2000, honra a las notables contribuciones al campo de la enfermería realizados por el ex empleado LifeStream Sandra M. Cabral, que era una enfermera y coordinadora de enfermería. Como reflejo de la carrera de Cabral y la misión de LifeStream, la beca se ofrece para mejorar la calidad de la asistencia médica a las personas con discapacidad que viven en la comunidad.
In her application, Ms. Sartini noted that she has a younger sister with Downs Syndrome, which ignited her passion for working with special needs children. She has volunteered at The Schwartz Center for Children in Dartmouth as well as Special Olympics.
“We were very impressed with Elizabeth’s passion for nursing as well as her commitment to supporting individuals with disabilities,” said John Latawiec, LifeStream President/CEO. “She is a very deserving candidate.”
