“Browne has brought distinction and recognition to the School of Nursing, the Faculty of Health Sciences and McMaster University through her innovative scholarship and research,” says Dr. Sandra Carroll, vice-dean, Faculty of Health Sciences & executive director, School of Nursing, McMaster University.

Browne’s citation reads:
Gina Browne has been a trailblazer in advancing evidence-informed innovations in care and service delivery for vulnerable populations. She became renowned as a distinguished researcher, scholar and educator while at the School of Nursing from 1971 until retirement as a professor in 2015. Dedicating much of her work to marginalized communities, mental health and chronic disease, she had a distinct talent for bringing together researchers, policymakers and community partners to develop and test integrated approaches to provide proactive and multisectoral care that improved lives of countless individuals and their families. Her approach has been applied across Canada and beyond. Among her awards is an honorary degree from Ryerson University.
