Shad Valley 2012 is Underway
Shad Valley, which has been nurturing the creativity and ingenuity of future leaders for more than 30 years, is an enrichment program for exceptional grade 10-12 students that focuses on entrepreneurship, science, engineering and technology. Shad President Barry Bisson explains the value of the program, “When I ask our Shad Valley alumni to reflect on their Shad Valley experience, they all say the same things, whether they were in the program one month ago or 25 years ago. They describe it as a life-changing, life-directing experience that opened their eyes to exciting opportunities for their education and career.”
NOSM's First Public Health and Preventive Medicine Resident Completes Training
On June 24, 2012, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine
(NOSM) celebrated the completion of training by the School’s first
Public Health and Preventive Medicine resident, Dr. Janet DeMille. DeMille, who will be working out of the Thunder Bay District Health
Unit, is also the first resident to complete a Royal College of
Physicians and Surgeon’s residency at NOSM.
"This really is a defining milestone for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine," explained Dr. Roger Strasser, NOSM's Dean. "We’ve continued to have physicians successfully completing medical school, but this is our first resident completing a specialty residency program other than family medicine. This program is significant to NOSM as Public Health is an essential piece of the School’s social accountability mandate of contributing to improving the health of the people of Northern Ontario."
