Ah… March. The sun is starting to shine bright outside, assignments starting to pile up as the penultimate month of school is here. As it is the second of March- it is also a THURSDAY… we are feeling a little bit nostalgic… Here are a few of our favourite photos from some of our/attended events from this year! Stay tuned for a lot more of #AHATBT as the semester starts to come to a close 😦

P.S… It is a THURSDAY which also means it is the first day of the INTERNATIONAL HEALTH FILM SERIES & EXPO… join us TODAY in MW 130 for “Migrant Dreams”. The discussants will be Andrea Bobadilla, Kusha Dadui and the event will be hosted by Professor Paloma Villegas. This will be a powerful feature documentary by multiple award-wnning director Min Sock Lee and Emmy award-winning producer Lisa Valencia-Svensson about the undertold story of migrant agricultural workers struggling against Canada’s Temporary Foreign worker Program (TFWP) that treats foreign workers as modern-day indentured labourers.

We hope to see you there and at the rest of our AHA events for the rest of the semester 😉 img_2299img_2298img_3008img_2850


EDU-KIT Drive for Orphans in Cambodia

AHA is hosting an “edu-kit” drive in collaboration with Students Helping Orphans Worldwide (SHOW) to collect school supplies and monetary funds to donate to an orphanage in Cambodia. Drop by the MW Atrium on November 3rd between 12-3pm. You can choose how much you’d like to be involved! Bring your own shoebox and school supplies, or purchase from our inventory of supplies. Bring a friend and create an Edu-kit together! Don’t have a shoebox? That’s fine, we’ll be able to provide you with one too! If you don’t have time to create an Edu-kit, we’re also accepting monetary funds and encourage you to donate however much you’re able to.

Academic Concerns Night


Are you taking any health or anthropology courses this year? Are you a student in the health or anthropology program? Do you have any concerns that need to be heard by the Department Chairs and Administration of the Anthropology & Health Department?

If so, please join AHA at our Academic Concerns night, taking place on November 20th from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Centre of Ethnography in MW296!

At this event, you will be able to voice your concerns, and we can discuss some of the issues that you might be experiencing. For example, discrepancies in course selection, course enrolment, courses being offered at the wrong times and not enough courses being offered in the summer.

AHA wants to bring YOU the change that you are looking for! We hope to see you there!
