On behalf of the ACAC, we are happy to award Ms. Sefrah Daviduck the 2020 Investing in our Future scholarship.
Daviduck is a brilliant fourth-year chiropractic student who is heavily involved in community initiatives, such as the CMCC's 2019 "Unleash Your Potential" bike tour, which encouraged Canadian youth to take control of their health.
Having grown up in a health-oriented household in Red Deer, Daviduck had a strong introduction to the medical field from a young age, and before pursuing chiropractic, Daviduck completed her undergraduate in nursing and worked as a registered nurse in Red Deer.
While she enjoyed nursing, she craved a different approach to patient care—one that allowed for a slower pace, more active listening, and increased one-on-one time with the patient.
Having spent her youth competing in a variety of sports, including running, swimming, and cycling, Daviduck knows first-hand the impact that injuries can have on our health, both mentally and physically. Bearing this impact in mind, Daviduck says, “I wanted to have a career where my focus was on keeping people mobile throughout their lifetime and getting them back to being active as quickly and safely as possible… I didn’t want people to feel the same way I had so many times when I had been injured.”
Dr. Dianna Martens, a volunteer on the ACAC Awards Committee, says, "Sefrah Daviduck is a fine example of the type of quality applicant deserving of this award. Her educational and community achievements show that she will be a great addition to our body of chiropractic professionals.”
Every year, the ACAC awards an Alberta resident studying chiropractic at an accredited chiropractic college a $2,000 Investing in our Future scholarship. If you know a student who would be interested in this opportunity, please have them visit our student page.
