Former Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) Nursing student and 2011 graduate Alison Cada recently received an award from the University of Calgary (UOC) Nursing faculty for his work with the Alzheimer’s Society of Calgary and two adult day programs for people living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
“The support provided to me by MCTC Nursing instructors and the level and quality of education I received during my time at MCTC has molded me into the nurse that I am today,” he said.
“Ali has a manner that all students can learn from and appreciate. He is calm, patient, adaptable, and always willing to listen to new ideas,” said UOC Nursing instructor Christine Foran. “He treats everyone equitably and with a genuine desire to create a lasting experience for each person he has contact with.”
Ali’s face is familiar to many. See his photos in this MCTC Nursing photo album!
