2021 Dr. Eric Jackman Health Scholars Learning Forum: The Power of Collaboration
The Dr. Eric Jackman Health Scholars Award is designed to support student research teams who will be funded to carry out community-engaged research alongside a LaMarsh faculty member and community partner. Teams are meant to foster a situation where both scholars receive mentorship from the faculty member and the undergraduate scholar receives mentorship from the graduate scholar. Dr. Jackman is the founding Chair of the Psychology Foundation of Canada and heads the Jackman Foundation with an interest in child development.
As noted by Dr. Jackman, “I just believe that the more we understand about how to raise children, how to educate them, the better off they are going to be. We have to find out how to do it – how the brain develops, how kids grow up, and how to educate them best.”
Teams will present an update of their project at the Dr. Eric Jackman Health Scholars Learning Forum, where the scholars, faculty member and community partner will speak to the impact of collaboration and mentorship. We will also hear from a pair of keynote speakers who are recognized for their knowledge mobilization expertise and efforts.
