By July 14, 2014News, Youth

Building on the success of Dalhousie’s School of Nursing Summer Camp for African Nova Scotian youth, the African Nova Scotian Health Sciences Initiative (ANSHSI) at Dalhousie University recently launched the African Nova Scotian Health Sciences Summer Day Camp on July 7, 2014.

The purpose of the camp, which is a partnership between the School of Nursing and the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie, is to increase interest in medicine, dentistry, nursing and other health professions within the African Nova Scotian community. African Nova Scotian students interested in a career in health and currently completing Grades 8, 9, 10 and 11 attended the camp this year.

The day camp, which was held from July 7-11, 2014 at Dalhousie University, introduced African Nova Scotian youth to a variety of health professions through fun, hands-on and interactive programming. The camp also offered personal development, cultural and recreational activities such as African drumming, swimming and other outdoor activities.
