The student subcommittee hosted two very successful open houses at the McMaster Health Forum this week, and we were very excited about the eagerness and interest shown by students during the short presentation, question period and tour of the Forum. This past summer, the student subcommittee underwent a strategic planning process, and as a result we are pleased to announce that many exciting opportunities on the student subcommittee are available for the 2012-2013 academic year.
