Elizabeth Naa Abiana Morton has set a new record by winning 8 academic prizes out of 13 categories from the School of Medicine, in addition to her award as Valedictorian, at the University of Health and Allied Science’s 6th Congregation, held on November 12, 2021 in Sokode-Lokoe.

Ms Morton went home with the Best Graduating Female Student in Community Medicine award; Best Graduating Student in Cardiothoracic Surgery, Medicine & Therapeutics, Community Medicine, and Obstetrics & Gynaecology; as well as three “Overall Outstanding Graduating MB,ChB Student” awards.

She also won the Vice Chancellor’s Prize for “Overall Outstanding Graduating UHAS Student.”

In her valedictory speech, she expressed, on behalf of her graduating class, their profound appreciation to the UHAS Management, Faculty and Staff for creating an enabling environment and nurturing them to be the professionals they are today.

She urged her colleagues to “go out into the world, bringing a positive change by effectively applying our skill sets, making our university and our nation proud.”

According to her, one of the most important things UHAS has taught her is to never let anyone tell her that she cannot achieve her goals.
