Jones takes Arnott Cato/COB award
DR WANEISHA JONES has become the eighth recipient of the Arnott Cato/City of Bridgetown Co-Operative Credit Union Ltd (COB) award.
The Masters of Public Health (MPH) student received a cheque worth $5 000 from representatives of both organisations on Wednesday during a presentation at the Clinical Skills Complex, Jemmotts Lane, St Michael.
Since 2010, the foundation and credit union have backed the award which goes to the Barbadian public health student who most impresses a panel.
Both Sir Errol Walrond of Arnott Cato and COB’s marketing manager Winston Alleyne said the support would continue.
The MPH programme was developed in 2008 and students benefit from interaction with technical experts from the Ministry of Health, the Chronic Disease Research Centre and global academic partners. (TG)
