According to a 2015 census, there are just over 3,000 homeless people living in Montreal. This number does not account for those who are dealing with hidden homelessness, such as temporarily living with friends or family or other short-term accommodation.
In addition to the many challenges and stresses of homelessness—such as meeting immediate survival needs for food, water, clothing and shelter from the elements—taking care of health needs might seem insurmountable.
The McGill French Language Centre is offering French language courses specifically designed for students registered in professional programs for health and social sciences with the aim of preparing them for professional practice in Quebec.
Incoming (first year) students enrolled in Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and Speech Language Pathology are required to attend the Interprofessional Education workshop. Attendance is for one of the two dates only and will be communicated in the first week of class.
When: October 10 OR 17, 2012 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
