On 7 April 2016, the Institute for Health Sciences hosted a Leadership Summit for the elected officers of the health professions associations and pre-professional health clubs on campus. The Summit provided a forum for the student leaders to meet one another, network and think about future collaborations, share challenges and successes, and learn from one another. Topics discussed included membership recruitment and retention; dues, fund raising and scholarships; succession planning and workload distribution; and ways that the Institute can support the health-related associations and clubs. The Institute will organize the next Leadership Summit in the fall 2016.
