COF Awards Bones and Phones Scholarship to Kayla Cyr
The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2019 Bones and Phones Scholarship. Dr. Kayla Cyr from Memorial University of Newfoundland receives the award for her role in EDUCATE: IPV, a project which focuses on intimate partner violence (IPV) and its prevalence in fracture clinics.
As a local IPV champion Dr. Cyr delivered the EDUCATE program to orthopaedic surgeons and health-care providers working in fracture clinics in St. John's, training them to recognize and combat intimate partner violence.
Founded by Dr. Veronica Wadey and Mr. Henry Chow, the Bones and Phones Legacy Scholarship Fund recognizes orthopaedic residents who have demonstrated commitment and contribution to enhancing musculoskeletal health beyond that which would be expected during their residency training period.
