The twice-yearly magazine highlights the latest news and student, faculty and alumni accomplishments from the five colleges of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences: the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry, Max Rady College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy and College of Rehabilitation Sciences.
The Rady researchers profiled in the Summer 2022 issue include Dr. Dana Turcotte, a pharmacy prof who is committed to working with patient partners to manage chronic pain, and Dr. Peter Nickerson, an award-winning kidney transplant trailblazer who was recently named Postl’s successor as dean of health sciences and medicine.
Rady alumni showcased in this issue include respiratory therapist Karen McElroy, who has found career satisfaction in a unique role in rural Manitoba; Monika Warren, Manitoba’s new chief operating officer for provincial health services and chief nursing officer; and Dr. Laura MacDonald, a UM graduate in dental hygiene, education and applied health sciences who never stops growing as a dedicated educator.
Other features look at three health-care leaders who were recently recognized with UM honorary doctorates; an Indigenous academic who urges doctors to reconnect body, mind, heart and spirit; and a new program that offers systemically excluded UM health sciences students learning opportunities in seven African countries.
