University of Manitoba,

Department of Community Health Sciences
From the
Department
Head
W
ith the summer holidays
upon us, this newsletter
is coming out a bit late, but
we hope that it will help
you to catch up with events
and activities around the
Department. The merging
of the Department of
Family Social Sciences
with Community Health
Sciences became official
on the 1st of July, and
we are continuing to
work to ensure that
communications are
in place for a smooth
transition. This is also a
“bumper” year for tenure
and promotion, with seven
faculty members applying
for one or the other or
both. Much thanks to
Noralou Roos, Chair of the
Tenure and Promotions
Committee, and all of the
committee members who have put in a lot of time and effort
into appraising and advising (and of course the applicants,
who had to navigate through a very lengthy and complex
process).
Recruitment for faculty positions, as indicated in the last
newsletter, is continuing: two general tenure-track positions,
one contingent position for MFN CAHR, one tenure-track
position at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy, and one
Canada Research Chair, Tier II tenure-track position in
complex adaptive systems. I will be able to update progress
on these efforts in the next newsletter. The flip side of
recruitment is retirement, and as indicated on Page 2, Dr.
Judith Bartlett retired from the University of Manitoba on the
30th of June. A well-attended retirement event in her honour

was held in CHS on the 29th June with
several speakers highlighting Judy’s career
and her contributions.
Finally, we have successfully navigated
our way through the first year of the new
pre-clerkship curriculum in undergraduate
medical education, and all first-year medical
students have passed the longitudinal
course in population health that CHS has
managed. This is a great achievement,
and thanks again to Joss Reimer, Adrienne
Morrow and Chelsea Jalloh for leading the
way, as well to all of our full-time and parttime faculty members who have contributed
to the teaching effort. Starting next month,
the incoming Med II class will experience the
second year of the new curriculum, and of
course we will be starting all over again with
Med I.

retirement of Carole Ouelette.
Carole served as Executive
Assistant and Office Manager
from 1995 - 2015 and provided
support to three Directors at
MCHP : Noralou Roos, Pat
Martens, and most recently, Alan
Katz. Carole wore many hats
as office manager, including
MCHP’s Human Resources
Manager, Chair of the Retreat
Committee, and Space
Committee. She also served
on other various groups and
committees at the University
of Manitoba. We will all miss
Carole; she was a great leader
and mentor to all MCHP staff.
She plans to spend most of
her retirement on the golf
course and with her family;
especially her grandchildren.

16th International ICCH
Congress on
Circumpolar Health
Submitted by Dr. Pamela Orr
T
he 16th International Congress on
Circumpolar Health was held in Oulu
Finland from 9 - 12 June 2015. The
International Union for Circumpolar Health,
which organises the meeting, was founded
in 1981 through the efforts of Dr. Jack Hildes
and others interested in circumpolar health
in Alaska, Canada, Greenland, the Nordic
countries, and Russia. In honour of Dr.
Hildes’ contribution, the Canadian Society
for Circumpolar Health (CSCH) asked the
famous sculptor Dora de Pedery-Hunt to
create a medal to be given to members of
the circumpolar societies from each IUCH
member region at the congress which meets
every three years. The CSCH has bestowed
this medal previously on Dr. Otto Schaefer
(1987), Evelyn Campbell (1990), Dr. Brian
Postl (1993), Dr. James Baxter (1996), Dr. Kue
Young (2000), Dr. Harriet Kuhnlein (2003), Dr.
Gary Pekeles (2006), Dr. Bruce Martin (2009),
and Dr. David Martin (2012). At the June 2015
meeting the CSCH Hildes medal was awarded
to Dr. Michael Jong. Dr. Jong has served as
a primary care physician, teacher, researcher
and administrator in Happy-Valley Goose Bay
Labrador for 35 years. His research interests
University of Manitoba

include telemedicine and mental health. He
embodies the spirit that Dr. Hildes and all the
medal winners have brought to their work with
northern peoples: compassion, dedication,
humility, and curiosity.
At the Annual Meeting of the Circumpolar
Health Research Network (CHRN) held during
the Congress, Dr. Pamela Orr was elected
Vice-President of the new executive council.
The CHRN has two main objectives: to promote
circumpolar research and the networking of
circumpolar researchers, and to promote the
communication of circumpolar research findings
through the publication of the International
Journal of Circumpolar Health (IUCH). The
CHRN is made up of individual members who
may join (see website http://circhnet.org) at no
cost, and institutions which may join at various
levels of fee and benefit. Current institutional
members include: University of Manitoba,
University of Laval, University of Tromso
(Norway),the Danish Greenlandic Society
for Circumpolar Health, University of Alaska
(Anchorage), and University of Oulu (Finland).
The University of Manitoba has been a strong
supporter of the CHRN and the IUCH journal
in particular, since their inception. Without this
kind of support we would not have a journal
that recognises the importance of circumpolar
health and the context within which health
research is conducted in this region. Canadian
researchers, including many from CHS of the
University of Manitoba, contribute the largest
number of articles to the IJCH.

Update Staff vs Students March Fundraiser
In the last newsletter, total funds raised for
the 3rd Annual Staff vs Students Basketball
fundraiser were not yet compiled. We are
happy to report we exceeded total dollars
raised last year – this year our grand total was
$3,260.00. Thank you to all who supported
this event. All monies raised will support the
SWISH and Basketball for Inner-City Kids
programs.
SWISH
The Summer Weekend Inner-City Supervised
Hoops program is back for its 4th year! To date,
over 300 youth from the Bannatyne community
have enjoyed the outdoor basketball venue
which is held in Parking Lot E. This year’s
program runs from July 4 – August 15th. If you
Page 6
are interested in volunteering on any of the
Saturdays, please contact Xavier Smith, SWISH
Coordinator at [email protected]
BBICK
In June, Faculty of Health Sciences volunteers
distributed 520 basketballs to fourteen different
K-6 inner city schools. The Basketballs for
Inner-City Kids Program (BBICK) provides
basketballs to graduating grade 6 students from
Bannatyne neighbourhood schools. For the
past few years, the program has provided over
4000 basketballs to students who are leaving
their K-6 schools – this is to acknowledge
their graduation, to show UM support for their
schools, to acknowledge their achievements
and to support continued physical activity
throughout the summer months.

rom July 6-10, CHS staff and volunteers will
travel to two First Nations communities in
northern Manitoba to deliver the BYP summer
camp.
On the 6th and 7th of July the two-day
health careers and science camp will be
held at Opaskwayak Cree Nation in the
Oscar Lathlin Collegiate High School.
Volunteers will then travel to Mosakahiken
Cree Nation (Frontier Mosakahiken School)
to provide the same programming from
the 8th to 10th of July. Both sites will
also include cultural and arts components
provided by community members and
volunteers. The northern camp is free
to Grades 6 – 9 students and CHS staff
and volunteers have worked with local
communities, band offices and schools to
ensure the camp’s success.
A former Occupational Therapy graduate,
Mr. Ben Salins, now employed with the
Northern Regional Health Authority, has
been a key player in bringing all partners

together and liaising with FHS.
The BYP summer camp will be held in
Winnipeg from July 20-24 for grades 6
– 12 students. Approximately 100 youth
are registered and ready to participate
in this fun, hands-on week-long camp.
Activities will include tour of the Clinical
Simulation Lab, microscopy, Pharmacy,
Medical, Dentistry and School of Med
Rehab sessions. Students participating
in the Health Careers Access Program
(HCAP) will be returning to the BYP camp
again. Students in the HCAP program
have a strong interest in health careers and
visit Winnipeg for a week-long exposure to
various health fields. Karen Cook and Drs.
Sharon Macdonald and James Gilchrist
collaborated with Wayne Heide, from
Manitoba’s Office of Rural and Northern
Health, and Noreen Wichart from UM’s
Access and Aboriginal Focus Programs to
include the northern participants into the
BYP programming.
