Out and About

Student showcase
After weeks of hard work, students working collaboratively in the areas of medicine, nursing and social work had the opportunity Nov. 7 to present their projects publicly. The Social and Health Pavilion, held on the third floor of the University Centre, featured displays on topics ranging from global health, to poverty, to date rape drugs. The pavilion was part of the Interprofessional Education for Collaborative Patient-Centred Practice project at Memorial, co-ordinated by the Centre for Collaborative Health Professional Education. Here, social work student Meghan Hillier, left, worked on this project on homelessness as part of the Service-Learning Project in Interprofessional Education. During the Social and Health Pavilion she explained some of the project’s findings to another social work student, Natalie Ivany.
