Sept 22 Student Open House

Are you interested in learning more about global health issues? Ever wondered what you could do as a student to address these health challenges? Come out to the Health Forum Open house event to learn more about what’s being planned for the coming year!

The McMaster Health Forum is a leading hub for improving health outcomes through evidence-based health policies. To increase student involvement, the McMaster Health Forum Student Leadership Team is hosting an open house to gear up for another busy year of initiatives. In our events, we strive to engage the McMaster student community in discussions and actions on pressing health challenges.

Students from all faculties are invited to attend the open house on Monday, September 21 from 6 to 7 p.m. This event caters to students interested in learning more about the Forum and its student-led initiatives. The event will also provide an opportunity for networking among students with shared interests in health-related topics.

The open house will feature a brief networking session with the student leadership team, a presentation describing the work of the Forum, and a tour of the Forum space on the fourth floor of Mills Memorial Library. We also welcome any input you may have on any topics of interest or events that you would like the Forum to hold.
