Pathways Healthcare Mentoring Program a Great Success

Jun 29, 2017

Rexdale CHC’s Pathways to Education pro­gram partnered with our centre’s primary health care team on a mentoring program to expose students to various careers in health care. Each month, students attended a two-hour session where they learned about careers in dental care, mental health, nutrition and traditional medicine.

Students took part in activities, tested out equipment and had opportunities to ask physicians, dietitians, and professionals in dentistry, nursing, mental health and chiropody any questions they had. As a cumulative assignment, two groups gave presentations to staff and some of their peers on nursing and dietetics. These were very well received and peers and staff joined presenters in celebrating their accomplishment in complet­ing the program.

Thanks to Dr. Miles Smith, Rachna Aggarwal and Tetiana Snopok for supporting the pro­gram’s coordination, and to the Dental team, CMHA team, Sonia, and the Chiropody students for supporting the program and bringing equip­ment for the students test out!
