UNB nursing student Shyane McKay will spend the summer assisting researchers improve the lives of elderly people after receiving the 2018 Summer Studentship Award by the Canadian Frailty Network and the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation.

The national competition provides students with interdisciplinary summer experiences that allow participants to gain an understanding of the health and social work environment for Canada’s older adults living with family.

Ms. McKay, a student on UNB’s Saint John campus, is working with an established research team at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Saint John, which is helping senior citizens who have suffered falls in hospitals.
