Sharing a love of science and research with community membersFor Hilary Brown, PhD candidate, Department of Epidemiology and Statistics, sharing a love of science and research with community members is a fulfilling experience. She is the coordinator for Strong Bones, Strong Minds, Strong Muscles (SBSMSM), a student initiative that aims to make research publicly accessible through community activities and fundraisers for health-related charities.
The group has presented at schools and retirement homes across the London region. SBSMSM also brings together Schulich Medicine & Dentistry graduate students, as they often work in different departments and wanted to network and volunteer as a group. “We provide opportunities for graduate students from across all departments to meet and work together on a common goal, and we provide ways to for students to give back to the community by sharing our love of science,” Brown said.
