Enhancing Quality of Care for Older Adults with Long-Term Care Needs: My 'Dream' Job (and a bit about how I got there)!

Contributed by Julie Lapenskie, MScAH'17

There are not a lot of gerontology/aging-specific graduate programs out there - particularly in Ontario. As someone with an unwavering passion for gerontology and health, I wanted an MSc program that specifically targeted this field.

And The Award Goes To…..

On April 14, 2018, the Ontario Physiotherapy Association (OPA) bestowed its annual award for Student / New Grad Leadership to Greg Smith (BPHE'13, MScPT'17). His nomination team for this award included two of Greg's classmates and three of the faculty members who teach in the Queen's Physical Therapy (PT) program. The pool of people who could be nominated for this award each year numbers about 500 people, including all final year PT students and all PTs in the first year of practice across Ontario who are members of the Association.

Throughout our life opportunities come our way, sometimes we need to lean into the uncertainty.
