Stefanie Rezansoff Receives MSc and Dean's Convocation Medal
Ms. Stefanie Rezansoff's thesis research involved collaboration with the BC Ministry of Health and the BC Ministry of Justice in order to examine the population-level relationships between mental illness, substance abuse and criminal recidivism.
This research constitutes an important advancement in knowledge for this area and she has been invited to present her findings nationally and internationally.
Ms Rezansoff holds an impressive list of awards, publications and conference proceedings, including several awards from the BC Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General.
Ms Rezansoff is unable to attend convocation because she is in Sweden, presenting her thesis findings at a conference in Stockholm. She will be returning to SFU this fall to begin her PhD studies, for which she has been awarded a doctoral fellowship from the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
On behalf of SFU, we congratulate Ms. Rezansoff on her outstanding achievements which are being recognized by her being awarded the Dean of Graduate Studies Convocation Medal as one of SFU's most outstanding graduate student from the Faculty of Health Science.
