A mother's road to medical school

When she was working as a welder in northern Alberta after graduating from high school, Dawn Armstrong had no idea that she would one day go to medical school. She wouldn’t even really start to think about pursuing a career in medicine until several years later, when she was in her late 20s with three children working towards a bachelor’s degree at Acadia, double majoring in Neuroscience and Biology and completing an honours thesis. Now, at the age of 31, Dawn is a mother of four, a strong aboriginal woman, and a first-year medical student at the Queen’s School of Medicine.
