Doctor Luka’s noble
Everybody wants to be a Doctor of Love, but did you know you
can find out how to be one oversees — only they do
more healing than love-making, but we all knew that anyway,
or did we?
The Global Health Interest Group will be holding an information
session called Experiencing Health in an International Context,
said Nancy Dzaja, an executive with the GHIG.
The session will be held on Nov. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Rm.
146 of the Medical Sciences Building with refreshments provided,
“[The session will discuss] endeavours for health in
Rwanda, Tanzania, India, Vietnam, that sort of thing,” Dzaja
said, adding there will be students and faculty members speaking
about their experiences in these countries serving public health
services and aiding local doctors.
“Global health is important and it’s all about
students reaching out to the poor,” she noted.
YOU can be Santa!
When it comes to Christmas gifts, there are some people who
prefer receiving, there are some who prefer giving, there
are some who prefer stealing and there are some who just
wait and hope Santa Clause will magically appear. For others,
Christmas is a stressful time, especially if they do not
have the money to buy gifts for family and friends.
A committee of the Science Students’ Council will be
holding an event called “angel tree,” beginning
this week and stretching until the end of this term, said Jordan
Gerster, the charity co-commissioner for the Council.
“A tree will be set up in the lobby of the Natural Science
[Centre],” Gerster said, noting each ornament on the
tree specifies a gift that will be donated to a family in need.
Anyone who wants to participate can come to the Natural Science
lobby where a booth will be set up next to the tree, Gerster
explained. People can choose an ornament, buy the gift specified
on it, wrap it and bring it back to the angel tree, she said,
adding each gift is about $10 in value.
The Children’s Aid Society of London will arrange for
two families in need to benefit from the donations to the angel
tree, Gerster said. “We welcome anyone from any faculty
to participate,” she said, adding the deadline to drop
off wrapped gifts is Dec. 3.
