a trio of triumphs

Dawn MackeyWith a Governor General’s silver medal for her near-perfect grade point average, and two lucrative research prizes — a Julie Payette/Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada scholarship, and a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research masters trainee award — recent kinesiology grad Dawn Mackey is poised for great things. Now a graduate student at SFU, Mackey imagines a career where she can help shape public policy; her current research focuses on fall prevention in the elderly.

Mackey credits SFU’s co-op program for steering her toward graduate school: “In particular, my third co-op placement, at the University of Queensland in Australia helped me realize how much I enjoyed research. It was an incredible growth experience for me personally.”
