Department of Public Health Sciences thanks Empire Life
On Friday January 31, 2014, the Department welcomed three representatives from the Head Offices of Empire Life for a luncheon and presentation. This was to honour the contributions of Empire Life, who has sponsored 19 graduate fellowships between 2003 and 2014 in our department. Three current Empire Life Fellows (Afshin Vafaei, Maya Djerboua, and Yvonne DeWit) presented their current work in the areas of child health. We were joined by Mr. Bill Leacy from the Advancement Office for this day. Representing Empire Life were Julie Tompkins (Vice-President, Human Resources & Communication Services), Laurie Swinton (Director, Communication Services), and Siobhan Coady (Co-ordinator, HR and Community Relations). Representing the Department of Public Health Sciences were Dr. Helene Ouellette-Kuntz (MSc program director), Dr. Duncan Hunter (Graduate Coordinator), Dr. Colleen Davison (Assistant Professor), and Dr. Will Pickett (Head of Department).
