Elijah Girard: award-winning emerging scientist

Science fair. Elijah Girard attracted attention at the regional final of the science fair held at the University of Sherbrooke from March 22-24. This third-year high school student from Orford Montessori School achieved great success with her project, which aims to prove the relationship between loss of the sense of smell and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease.

To do this, Ilya conducted a smell test on three groups of people, including a group with Parkinson's disease or Alzheimer's disease, to see if there was a decline in their perception and identification of smells.

In addition to an entry pass to the regional final to be held in Montreal from April 19-21, Elijah received a $750 scholarship from the Sherbrooke Center for Health Expertise and another $500 from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Montreal. Sherbrooke.
