Past Events 2010 – 2011

The 2010 – 2011 academic year has been a busy and successful year with a huge growth in membership number and participation.
We ran two simulations: one large scale 50+ casualty simulation with the City of Kitchener, and one actor and professionals guided mental health crisis simulation. We also started peer mentoring workshops to get different professions learning together and from each other.
