The resilience and determination of our health professional students

This blog was originally published in the Kingston Whig Standard on October 22, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has put an exceptional strain on health systems. On very little notice, all aspects of our health systems had to pivot and adapt.

These changes have had a trickle-down effect on our health professional students. I’m both proud of them and concerned for them.

Celebrating the launch of the faculty's EDI initiative

It’s a big day at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) as we mark the official opening of an Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and launch the Dean’s Action Table on EDI (DAT-EDI).

What is an Action Table and why do we need one?

We need social interaction, now more than ever, as educators and learners

I firmly believe that we learn best when we learn together. That is why we must ensure that while we are physically distant in the months ahead, we remain socially connected.

What we can accomplish together in the years ahead through discovery, harmony & equity

To become Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at Queen’s University is one of the greatest honours of my life. Being the first woman to hold this position is especially meaningful. I want to thank Dr. Richard Reznick for his amazing 10 years of service as Dean. He has accomplished so much and has kindly provided me with a great orientation to get started.
