In an effort to support future nurse leaders, ICLS donated scholarship awards two years running to the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto. Every year the staff at ICLS put their heads together to think of a gift Dr. Julie Khanna and Dr. Sheetal Sapra would love for Christmas! While they always tell us that they need nothing, we know that both of their hearts lie in philanthropy, so a gift that gives back would truly be the most special gift. So on behalf of ICLS, we created “The Dr. Julie Khanna and Dr. Sheetal Sapra Undergraduate Award in Nursing.”
Last year it was given to a deserving recipient in her senior year in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program. We were so thrilled to receive such a nice thank you card from her. It was immediately evident that she was so deserving of this scholarship.
With plastic surgery, dermatology, the Skin Spa and a full clinical trials unit all under one roof, we have definitely grown over the years from a small office with one receptionist and one laser! But one thing is certain; we would not be where we are today without the dedication and hard-work of our large nursing staff.
In past years ICLS actually bought Dr. Khanna and Dr. Sapra goats through World Vision. These goats and other purchased livestock allow families to improve their futures by providing them with a source of sustainable income. Other gifts that can be purchased include chickens, pigs, warm clothing, child sponsorship, mosquito nets and more.
