Celebrating the Aboriginal Health Sciences Initiative as Dal looks toward province‑wide services for students
The reach and impact of Dalhousie’s Aboriginal Health Sciences Initiative (AHSI) over its eight-year run stretches far beyond its small offices and two staff members based in the Mona Campbell Building.
After eight years, the program is winding down as initiatives transition to a broader university-wide effort to advance student-focused Indigenous programs. The AHSI has played a key role in transforming Dalhousie’s approach to Indigenous support services and programming, helping the university grow its leadership in diversity and inclusion of Canada’s Indigenous peoples as it approaches its third century.
“Dalhousie’s Aboriginal Health Sciences Initiative has encouraged our various training programs to be responsive to the unique needs of Aboriginal populations,” says David Anderson, dean of medicine. “We’re committed to fostering an educational environment that welcomes learners who are representative of the Canadian population.”
