Health Sciences Student Initiative

Hello everyone!
Brand new this year, the Health Sciences Students’ Association (HSSA) has designed a Student Initiative Signup Form! This form was designed to support health sciences students who wish to start an initiative, engage in research, or start a project that pertains to health science students. We hope to provide human resource support to such initiatives and foster the growth of health science student-run projects. Our aim is to establish meaningful inter-professional collaboration. If you are interested, describe your initiative using the form. This will ensure that HSSA can provide you with relevant and beneficial support, and connect you to other resources or inter-professional representatives. We look forward to working with you! 
Previous student initiatives that were supported by the HSSA include:
1) Research: Health sciences students and their perceptions of using spacers with inhalers 
2) Initiative: Questions: About Alberta Healthcare System
3) Event: HSSA candy grams for Christmas
4) Lunch and Learns
5) Others

Lock & Key Party!

“Attention fellow healthcare friends!

The Health Sciences Students Association (HSSA) is hosting the annual Lock and Key Party on September 14th, 2018!


The Lock & Key party “unlocks” the door for healthcare students to get to know each other outside of the classroom!

Throughout the night you will try to match with as many locks/keys as you can (with the added bonus of getting to know your future healthcare colleagues).

When you and a new friend have a compatible lock and key, your names will be entered into a draw for a prize! What better way to reunite with old friends and make some new ones!

Who? YOU! Plus students from Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Dental Hygiene, Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Public Health, Medical Lab Sciences and more!

Where? The Pint on Whyte

How? Tickets are available through your faculty IP rep, IP Launch HSSA table, or at the door! 5$ cash only!

When? Friday, September 14th, with the unlocking to commence at 8:30pm.”

Let’s have a great time!
