Doctor Luka’s noble example
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, Dzaja noted.

“[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.
