A long-overdue degree and hope for our future

Last Thursday was convocation for the School of Nursing and the School of Medicine, and those of us on the faculty had the joy of seeing our tremendous graduates receive their new degrees.

A call to disrupt racism in health sciences education

Last week at Queen’s, we hosted Dr. Barry Lavallee, who is a member of Manitoba First Nation and Métis communities and a specialist in Indigenous health and northern practice. Dr. Lavallee stayed with us for three days and provided a series of events aimed at raising our awareness of the ways in which Indigenous people in Canada experience the health care system. I cannot thank Dr. Lavallee enough for agreeing to travel from Manitoba to speak with us, and for offering us such an important perspective that we all need to hear.

Jackie Duffin inducted into Canadian Medical Hall of Fame

Last Thursday, I had the thrill of attending the induction ceremony for the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame.
