The Health Protection (Gwen E. Leslie Memorial) Lecture is to take the form of a plenary lecture/presentation. Any home economics association or post-secondary educational institution in Canada may apply.
Gwen E. Leslie, a 1955 graduate of the University of Manitoba, worked as a home economist for 30 years. For 12 years, from 1975 until her death in December 1985, she was Regional Consultant, Educational Services (Central Region), with the Health Protection Branch of Health and Welfare Canada in Winnipeg and active in home economics associations locally, provincially and nationally. She counted many home economists among her friends. Following her death, members of Gwen’s family wished to perpetuate her association with public education in her professional field. They funded an annual lecture to take place at the CHEA conference. It is administered by the Canadian Home Economics Foundation (CHEF). Since the dissolution of CHEA in December 2003, the lecture sites have been changed and more than one lecture may be held annually.
The total grant funding available each year is $3,000.
Applications are received on an on-going basis.
