Making Change: How a Tragic Loss Inspired Two New Awards for Indigenous MD Students

“We are all able to make change. All of us are able to make change.” As a paediatric infectious, tropical disease and global health specialist, Dr. Anna Banerji (MD’89) has been guided by this philosophy throughout her entire career caring for, researching and advocating on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children. And, now, two years after the sudden death of her adopted 14-year old Inuk son, Nathan, it’s also something in which she’s found great comfort and healing.  Now, two years after this tragic loss, Banerji is joining several close friends and colleagues in leading two new initiatives that seek to both honour Nathan’s life and contribute to positive change for Indigenous students in the Faculty of Medicine.
