Esteemed physician, former Nova Scotia Minister of Health and beloved Dalhousie faculty member Dr. Ronald Stewart has pledged $1.3 million to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF).

Dr. Stewart is an accomplished physician, politician, and researcher who studied and worked at Dalhousie’s Medical School. A leader in health system reform, Dr. Stewart established the highly-recognized current Emergency Health Services (EHS) system and a major expansion of home care services.

The funds will support of the establishment of the Ronald Stewart Symposium in Emergency Medical Services Research and provide seed funding for a chair in the same field. This pledge, announced last week, will be paid out over the next ten years.
