McMaster students cited in The Lancet

Bachelor of Health Sciences students got a nod in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet.  A 2011 report, Student Voices 2: Assessing Proposals for Global Health Governance Reform, written by fourth-year students in the global health governance course, was cited in the July 28, 2012 issue of the journal.

The students conducted evidence-informed analyses of 13 proposals for global health governance reform. The report was the first-ever comprehensive assessment of a broad range of potential global health governance reforms.

Del Harnish, assistant dean of the B.H.Sc. program, said the report "represents a particularly good example of the integration of research and teaching and involvement of McMaster students in authentic learning on community and global issues."
