University of Waterloo TD Discovery Day 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.

from Dr. Jan Christilaw, President of BC Women's Hospital and Health CentreThe day begins with a keynote lecture from Dr. Jan Christilaw, President of BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre “Delivering the Future: Reflections on a Journey in Maternal Health from ‘Local’ to ‘Global’”. Dr. Christilaw leads the largest obstetrical hospital in Canada with 7,000-7,500 deliveries a year, and has responsibility for the tertiary and quarternary care of high risk pregnancies for British Columbia, as well as many other aspects of women’s health for the province.  The BC Women’s Hospital is the primary care provider for the majority of low risk women in Vancouver, and Dr Christilaw has had a leading role in assuring that respect for ‘normal birth’ is always a priority of care at the hospital.

After the morning workshops and a lunch provided for by the CMHF, students will sit for an interactive Alumni Career Panel featuring Waterloo alumni working in the field of health sciences.For full details on this year's event, including the day’s itinerary and workshop descriptions, visit The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame’s University of Waterloo TD Discovery Day in Health Sciences website.
