Educating the community on injury prevention

Dr. Wai Ng, associate professor of clinical neurology, is the Chapter Director of the Think First London Chapter, an international organization whose mandate is to bring injury prevention to the primary school curriculum.

The organization usually presents to more than 1,000 grades five and six students per year with the help of Schulich Medicine student volunteers.

“By working with medical students and young children in the community, I can continue to raise awareness about sport injury and promote prevention,” said Dr. Ng.

Dr. Ng believes his work with Think First is a chance to give back to not only the community, but to also enrich the education of Schulich Medicine & Dentistry students.
