Nursing student Michaela Patterson wins Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award

The Faculty of Health Sciences is pleased to announce that fourth year nursing student Michaela Patterson is a 2021 recipient of the Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award.

The Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award is the highest tribute that can be paid to a student by the prestigious Tricolour Society. Every year, it is awarded to a handful of students for their distinguished service to the university in non-athletic extra-curricular activities. Recipients are nominated by their peers and are selected by the Tricolour Society based on the three tenets of service, leadership, and character.

Michaela is a recipient of this award due to her dedication to supporting BIPOC students and creating a more inclusive community within the School of Nursing and the Faculty of Health Sciences. As the 2020-2021 Vice President of the Queen’s Black Academic Society, Michaela had a meaningful impact on her peers and the university during a time when it was needed most.

In addition, Michaela is the co-founder of EDI @ SON (Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion at Queen’s School of Nursing) and co-creator of Cultural Humility and Racial Microaggressions (CHARM), a simulation game for students focusing on microaggression management in the clinical setting.

Michaela and the rest of the Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award recipients will be presented with their awards during a virtual reception on Thursday, June 10 at 7pm.
