The Bonnie Schultz Memorial Award is given to a Pharmacist who demonstrates outstanding excellence in optimizing patient care, compassion, empathy, concern, excellence in communication skills, demonstration of skilled practice, mentorship, high practice standards, innovation and serves as a role model. These are qualities that Nora brought to work with her every day of her career.
Nora graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1969 as the Gold Medalist of her class. This was the standard that Nora set for herself in every area of Pharmacy that she worked in. After a 47 year career, Nora retired, spending her last 11 years working in the Neepawa Health Centre Pharmacy.
Nora was a valued member of every health care team she was involved with, as she brought leadership, team building and high standards to all of these groups. She developed many long lasting professional and personal relationships with her colleagues, including Bonnie Schulz, the dedicated pharmacist that this award remembers. All of us who have had the pleasure of working with Nora are better for the time they spent with her.
