WE-Spark Health Institute has developed a team of post-secondary students from St. Clair College, the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry - Windsor Campus, and the University of Windsor at the undergraduate and graduate levels to support and advance health research across Windsor-Essex.
Students select projects that align with their interests, skills, and goals. Past requests have included such areas as data entry, collection and analytics, outreach and public education, digital communications such as infographics and social media, literature reviews, and environmental scans.
“We have a total of 51 students who have banked over 2,000 hours in the last year,” says WE-Spark student network co-ordinator Ryan Palazzolo. “Our students bring energy and enthusiasm to research teams. They’re dedicated and eager to learn and contribute to local health research projects at various capacities.
“We’re training the next generation of health researchers, while building our capacity to advance research and innovation right here in our region. It’s a win-win all around.”
Those seeking student volunteers are invited to submit their project requests here.
