Happy New Year, HGSSers!
As discussed at our annual general meeting in November, we have voted to add a new position to the HGSS executive! We are currently recruiting for a new Vice-President of Health and Wellness. If you are passionate about mental and physical well-being and helping ensure your fellow peers have a healthier grad school experience during their degree, AND you are interested in joining the HGSS executive, then this position is the one for you! Details about your respective duties are:
- Attend the Graduate Health & Wellness meetings organized by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
- Survey HGSS members’ level of health and wellness at least once per year and identify factors that have positive and negative impact on our students’ wellness.
- Plan and organize, with the help of the President and Vice President Internal, initiatives and events throughout the academic year that can mediate issues pointed out by the Health & Wellness survey responses.
- Coordinate HGSS team(s) within the McGill Intramural Sports Program. This includes registering the team(s), registering students, ensuring there’s a team captain for each team and ensuring that teams are able to play the scheduled matches.
Joining the HGSS executive is a great way to get involved and meet people in the McGill Human Genetics programs. Since there are many positions in the HGSS executive already, your workload as VP H&W will be fulfilling, but will NOT be overwhelming. You will get to work on a team who will support and assist you to make sure your efforts are as successful as possible.
If interested, please contact HGSS President Anjie Ni at firstname.lastname@example.org, to declare your candidacy! If more than one candidate applies, we will hold a brief by-election via email. Please have your emails to Anjie by 12:00PM on Friday, January 21st, 2022.
