"As a young girl, Tania Dick of the Dzawada’enuxw First Nation had a dream, and a hero. Her dream was to help heal her community. Her hero was her mother Mary — a residential school survivor and the first Indigenous graduate out of UBC nursing."
"Dick followed in her mother’s footsteps and became the first Indigenous grad of the University of B.C.’s master of nursing-nurse practitioner program.
Now Dick has been appointed to a newly created role at the university’s school of nursing as its first Indigenous nursing lead."
