Mentorship

Supporting, mentoring, and sponsoring individuals to grow and thrive

The Equity in Health Systems (EqHS) Lab recognizes the importance and power of ensuring that individuals, especially from underrepresented populations in our health system, are provided with support, mentorship, and sponsorship. We have personally benefitted from this on an individual and collective basis, and we seek to establish novel strategies that authentically foster individuals to grow and thrive.

The Equity in Health Systems (EqHS) Lab has collaborated with the Cooperative Education Program at Gloucester High School (Ottawa, Canada) to offer this unique high school co-op placement opportunity.
