The Association of Health Administration Students (AHAS), in partnership with the School and Alumni Association, presented Professional Development Week – November 14th – 18th, 2011.
- A screening of CBC’s “Staying Alive – An inside look at insite injection centres.” The viewing was followed by a discussion session surrounding the issues raised in the film;
- “Bad Decision Making: The Ultimate Inefficiency” lecture was presented by Dr. Joe Byrne, Director. The presentation highlighted essential mistakes to avoid, including miscalculating risk and cause, under-estimating the psychology of conformity and information bias, and overestimating public knowledge.
- “Diversity and Inclusive Language for Health Administrators Workshop” with Lyndsay Anderson, Residency Life Manager. The workshop addressed what kinds of diversity exist, how people may be unintentionally (or intentionally) excluded or discriminated against, how to use inclusive or inoffensive language, and what to do when you see people acting or speaking inappropriately.
- On Friday, a potluck lunch was held with all monies raised going to Feed Nova Scotia’s Adopt-a-Family.
Congratulations to AHAS on a week well done!
