McGill University’s School of Nursing launched today a new patient- and family-centred initiative, made possible by a visionary contribution from entrepreneur and philanthropist Richard S. Ingram, of the Montreal-based Newton Foundation. McGill also announced that the School has been renamed in honour of Mr. Ingram’s longtime support of nursing at McGill and across Quebec.
