Welcome to the Prism’18 crash course! My name is Andrew Thompson, and I’m the President of Project Pulse Calgary. Allow me to be the first to extend a welcome to our event, we couldn’t be more excited to share this experience with you. On November 17th, students will have an opportunity to hear from leading cardiologist Dr. Julio Garcia, who will be delivering his keynote talk, “The Twister Inside Us,” courtesy of our sponsor, the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta. Over the course of the day, students will participate in six activity-based workshops, ranging from science-based education on marijuana and fentanyl, biomedical engineering, first aid as a student, research 101, biomedical case studies, and mental health in youth. Additionally, students will have a chance for a career and university Q+A with ten leading professionals and university students. Lastly, various third-party organizations will be available for questions and networking at our Opportunity Fair. You’ll find more information on what all of these events will entail throughout this crash course! Whether you’re here to discover the health sciences or to plan a future career path, there will be something for you!
Welcome aboard, and see you November 17th!
