The Judy Van Tilbury Memorial Bursary recognizes the critical importance of networking to further one’s career by providing two bursaries to support registration and participation at the DC annual conference for members currently enrolled in an accredited internship or practicum program.
Currently enrolled in her final year of graduate studies at Mount Saint Vincent University, Gillian Chu plans to attend the DC Conference to present research conducted as part of her graduate degree. In addition to research, Gillian has a strong interest in working with vulnerable populations, especially the elderly, sparked by past volunteer experiences in both clinical and community settings. Gillian is looking forward to attending the DC conference and the opportunities to hone her research and communication skills and to connect with other dietitians who share similar career goals. Gillian’s conference attendance is supported by the DC Student Network.
