The Ron de Burger Student Award

Categories : NCCEH,Students

The Ron de Burger Student Award is an annual award offered in partnership with the Environmental Health Foundation of Canada (EHFC) for students enrolled in Canadian post-secondary institutions offering a Public Health Inspection (PHI) program or a degree in public health. It is dedicated to the memory of Ron de Burger, who was a celebrated leader in public health and a longtime NCCEH advisory board member.



The award offers students the opportunity to:

  • demonstrate their understanding of the Knowledge Translation (KT) process and how to apply KT to environmental public health practice and policy making;
  • obtain valuable networking opportunities through the NCCEH; and,
  • be recognized for quality KT work.

This year, three prizes of $700 will be awarded for outstanding short knowledge translation papers addressing an environmental public health problem. Winners will be given the opportunity to write a blog post for the NCCEH website highlighting their paper, and a chance to present their work as part of the NCCEH seminar series.

Winning submissions will also be posted on the NCCEH and EHFC websites.
