Sartini-croppedElizabeth Sartini of Tiverton was selected as this year’s recipient of the Sandra M. Bolsa de Enfermagem 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.

A bolsa de estudos, estabelecida em 2000, homenageia os notáveis ​​contribuições para o campo da enfermagem feito por ex-empregado LifeStream Sandra M. Cabral, que era uma enfermeira e coordenadora de enfermagem. Refletindo a carreira de Cabral e missão da LifeStream, a bolsa é oferecida para melhorar a qualidade da assistência médica disponível para as pessoas com deficiência que vivem em ambientes comunitários.

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.”
