HMB Dean’s International Initiatives Fund 2014 Update


“Four students, four papers! One of our strongest 53rd Week partnership teams with UofT!”– 53rd Week Director of Operations,  Dr. Lawrence Loh

In 2014, a group of four Human Biology students (who were enrolled in HMB323H1: Global Health Research) spent their reading week in La Romana, Dominican Republic (DR) doing research. Through their hard work and commitment to this project, they have just successfully published their fourth paper!  Excellent work Bethina Loiseau, Rebekah Sibbald, Salem Alexi Raman, Darren Benedict and their co-supervisor, Dr. Helen Dimaras (HMB323H1S Course Instructor)!

Next up: translating the knowledge to our partners in La Romana, DR! HMB323H1S 2016-17 once again plans to send students to La Romana. Watch out for #HMBicm2017.

These opportunities were made possible with funding from Arts and Science, University of Toronto.
