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.

On-campus and online: this student's unique journey in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program

Allison Nerbas grew up in Aurora, Ontario and moved to Kingston to attend Queen’s after high school, but she never sets foot in a classroom.
