Join us as we continue the conversation with our spring speakers Dr. Karen Schultz and Dr. Stephanie Nixon at the Humanity in Healthcare In-person workshop. Given the success of the Fall in-person workshop, we're inviting you to gather with us, celebrate successes, and have meaningful conversations to recharge, reflect, and come together.

This program is a beacon for interdisciplinary conversation about the Humanity in Healthcare. Speakers and panelists are from across the health professions, patient representatives, and advocates. The program is a chance to connect and recharge by looking at what unifies us all: the experience, joys, and agonies of providing and experiencing healthcare.


Karen Schultz (Pinky), MD, CCFP, FCCP. I was born and raised in Vancouver, and thus still live in perpetual hope that winter will be only 2 months long!  I have worked as a family physician at Queen’s essentially my whole working career, and currently have the honour of being the associate dean for PGME.  I live in Kingston with my husband and wonder dog Gus, and have 2 grown kids off doing exciting things in various places.


Stephanie Nixon, PhD, is Vice Dean (Health Sciences) and Director (School of Rehabilitation Therapy) at Queen’s University. Prior to joining Queen’s in July 2022, Stephanie spent 15 years as a professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto. She completed her PhD in Public Health and Bioethics in 2006 at the University of Toronto, and a post-doc at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa in 2007. Stephanie was director of the International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation from 2012-2021. Stephanie is a straight, white, middle class, able-bodied, cisgender, settler woman who tries to understand the pervasive effects of privilege. Stephanie developed the Coin Model of Privilege and Critical Allyship as a way to translate core ideas about anti-oppression to people in positions of unearned advantage.
