This presentation covers three recent studies demonstrating a range of applications of assessment data.
University of Waterloo Discovery Days in Health Sciences is presented in partnership with The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, and is a day of hands-on workshops to help grade 10 and 11 high school students explore the wide variety of careers in the field of health sciences.
The Hallman Lecture Series welcomes Dr. Leon Geffen, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa for an exploration of a novel psychosocial peer support program, modelled upon an existing HIV support program, for providing peer-to-peer companionship to other older adults. Initial outcomes of the study have shown that a peer support program is an effective approach to improve wellbeing of older persons living in disadvantaged communities.
Applied Health Sciences graduating students are invited to join special alumni guests Charlie Johnstone, CEO of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and Rohit Ramchandani, Founder and CEO of Antara Global Health Advisors; their favourite AHS professors; and Dean James Rush, as they offer congratulations, celebrate your achievements and share inspiring words of advice.
Join AHS alumni as they return to campus to share their experiences, offer career insight, and speak with you and your fellow classmates about what to expect once you have graduated from Waterloo.
