The Association of Health Administration Students (AHAS) was honoured to be nominated as one of three best department societies at the first annual Dalhousie Student Impact Awards. The award is presented to the departmental society ratified with the DSU that has demonstrated the highest level of consistency in event planning and delivery, high participation and attendance of their membership, and sets an example for other student societies. AHAS is a relatively small society, and was thrilled to be nominated in recognition of:
- A visioning exercise that guided activities throughout the year, the introduction of a committee structure which enabled a great amount of accountability and activity, and advocacy for new initatives.
- Activities such as hosting a successful bake sale to raise money for charity, facilitating informative lunch-and-learn sessions, coordinating events with the Alumni Association and the Canadian College of Health Leaders, participating in Trick-or-Eat and developing community partnerships.
AHAS has evolved from a small association to a power house group, setting the bar high for future years and developing a solid example. Congratulations AHAS!
