Helen Glass Research Symposium

The Helen Glass Research Symposium is an annual event where you get to hear from innovative researchers from the frontlines of nursing. The College of Nursing hosts the symposium in honour of Dr. Helen Glass, who was a dedicated pioneer of the nursing profession.

Remembering Helen Glass

The Helen Glass Research Symposium is generously supported by the estate of Dr. Helen Glass, who was a dedicated pioneer of the nursing profession. Dr. Glass was named director of the School of Nursing in 1972, a position she held until 1979. She was instrumental in establishing a graduate program in nursing at the university and also in creating the Manitoba Nursing Research Institute — what we now know as the Manitoba Centre for Nursing Health Research (MCNHR).

Visitors to the University of Manitoba campus will note that the College of Nursing is housed in the Helen Glass Centre for Nursing, which was named in 1999 in her honour.
