Honouring the University Health Centre Nursing Team

The University Health Centre Nursing Team - The University of Alberta's 2017 Community Leader Honourees
On May 5, 2016, 1200 people moved into Lister – they arrived after spending 1 to 3 days on cots in the open areas of the Expo Centre at Northlands. People were traumatized by having just lost their homes (or not knowing if they had or not), losing their employment, having families separated, leaving pets behind, and in many cases having experienced the ordeal of being stuck in slow moving traffic as they fled the fires and agonized as they watched their community burn.

Elaine Hyshka: Approaching Substance Use through a Public Health Lens

Elaine Hyshka - the University of Alberta's 2017 Community Scholar Honouree
Elaine Hyshka’s community engagement activities do not fall into the regular duties of most academics, yet she rarely misses an opportunity to increase understanding regarding harm reduction and supervised injection services, even if that means rearranging her schedule and/or catching up on her other responsibilities long after the work day has ended. This extra effort has paid off through tangible benefits and value to the community.
