June 24, 2010
TORONTO, June 24, 2010 Nicole Papineau, a third year student at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) has won a scholarship as part of the Bobs Red Mill Intercollegiate Cup. The scholarship was presented at the Northwest Naturopathic Physicians Convention recently held in Portland, Ore.
Papineau created a video extolling the benefits of the grain quinoa which was not only chosen as the best entry from CCNM but also made her a finalist. Each finalist then gave a 10 minute speech on the topic of Food as Medicine.
Papineau placed third in the event and originally received an award prize of $1,000. However, Bob Moore of Bobs Red Mill was so impressed with all the winners that he presented each of them with the top prize of $5,000 instead.
I was so surprised and happy, said Papineau of the scholarship. It felt amazing to represent CCNM. Im still in shock and so grateful.
First prize went to Derek Andre of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Ore., while Erika Kubanek of the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, B.C. took home second prize.
