Faculty and Students attend Create an Impact Reception
by Kelly Brennan
On February 24th, the Create an Impact reception was held to recognize graduate students and post doctoral students at Queen’s University who received a tri-council award from SSHERC, NSERC and CIHR. The Department of Public Health Sciences was well represented at this event, as several Master’s and PhD students have received CIHR Canada Graduate Scholarships to pursue their research. A few PHS students and their supervisors were in attendance for a congratulatory speech from Dr. Brenda Brouwer (the Vice Provost and Dean, School of Graduate Studies) followed by some networking over hors d’ouevres.
The event was a great opportunity to network among graduate students from other departments and find out what their research is all about.
