I’m interested in all fields so really don’t have any one interest, learning might be the best guess. I’m almost always around campus so please drop by or contact me if you want to talk about courses or anything anthropology and health in general that may help you out in anyway.

Mathusa Selvendran
VP of Health Studies
Psychology and Health Policy (CO-OP)

I am passionate about Health Studies. In health studies I love learning about the different health paradigms and lens through which health is interpreted. To elaborate I like to explore how the concepts of health, ill-health and mental stability vary amongst cultures, and how these differences in understanding contribute to the ways in which health programs are implemented across the globe. My majors are: Double major in Health studies (Co-op) and Psychology Dreams: Personally, I have always seen myself in the mental health field working towards alleviating the suffering and tackling the inequalities that those with mental health disorders face on a daily basis and help them reintegrate back into society. Goals: I want to always be open minded and welcome new experiences. random fact: I love watching dance choreographies and pretending I’m just as much of a skilled dancer as those in the video i’m watching. I’m also very open to new experiences and love learning new things.

Halima Farah

Social Media Coordinator & Health Policy Coordinator 
Double Major in Health Studies and English

As a student double-majoring in Health Studies & English and who is also moonlighting as a writer, the interconnection of health studies, literature and writing have inspired my perspectives and experiences as a individual. I am deeply interested in the use of different mediums such as art, literature, drama as well as the integration of social media to portray various first-person experiences with the healthcare system. I was able to explore this further in ACTipedia’s first ever Day of Action at UTSCwhich showcased the invisibility of aging-related content on Wikipedia. The creativity that I have found within myself has stemmed from the ways in which Health Humanities can showcase and portray art while contributing to our understanding of multiple individualistic experiences of health. I currently maintain and handle the social media pages for SCOPE as well as AHA UTSC (Anthropology and Health Studies Association). My work can be found at
