Podcast: Giving a voice to their peers

Allison Dilliott, PhD Candidate with the Department of Biochemistry, decided to become Chair of the Graduate Students Council through a desire to be an advocate for her peers and to increase transparency and communication between them and the School.

She feels privileged to meet with faculty members monthly and provide feedback on new ideas and processes that will impact the School’s trainees. Recently, she was joined by fellow student leaders Jessica Garabon (Medicine), Rishika Geda (BMSc) and Toddy Kaiway (Dentistry) on a podcast about student leadership. The group discusses their path to student leadership and the priorities for their programs.
