Alumna Christina Hassan honoured at 2018 Rotary Day at the United Nations

Christina Hassan (BSc ’14, Health Studies; MPH ’16) was recently honoured as one of six People of Action: Young Innovators during Rotary Day at the United Nations in Nairobi, Kenya.

Christina was recognized for establishing FullSoul, a Canadian program that supplies safe, sterile childbirth equipment to hospitals in Uganda. She was inspired to do this after a life-changing co-op work term brought her face-to-face with the untenable conditions under which many Ugandan women give birth.

Christina holds several other honours and awards, including the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (2010), AHS Co-op Student of the Year (2011), the YMCA International Peace Medallion (2013) and the AHS Young Alumni Award (2015).

She and husband Hyder (BA ’12, Liberal Studies) have also been honoured with the 2018 Top 40 Under 40 award in Calgary, where they now live. Congratulations!
