50th anniversary launch

On May 8th, 2017, the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) launched their 50th anniversary celebration with a lunch in the AHS Expansion Building and remarks on AHS’ past, present and future from Dean James W.E. Rush and past deans, Bob Norman and Roger Mannell.

The celebration was followed by a public lecture hosted by the School of Public Health and Health Systems featuring Honourable A. Anne McLellan, P.C., O.C., A.O.E. for a talk titled The legalization and regulation of cannabis – what does it all mean?.

We had a tremendous turn out for both events, with more than 120 faculty, staff, students and alumni at the opening celebration and 225 people at the Anne McLellan public lecture.
