In the Faculty of Health Sciences, we are blessed with a very large staff of nearly 750 individuals who, day in day out, work extremely hard to enable our academic mission to thrive. One thing we don’t do often enough is say thanks. This blog is dedicated to all of our staff.

Engaging in the change: Co-creation

The following guest blog was written by a friend and colleague, Dr. James Wright, who is a recognized Canadian leader in orthopaedic surgery and health care outcomes research. He has also been very involved in leadership activities, both as a part of his professional work and as a student of the discipline of leadership. Jim recently started a new blog on clinical leadership, and I'm delighted to share one of his posts as a part of Dean on Campus. - Richard
