Involving Students in Research is a Great Idea. Learn Why
WE-SPARK Health Institute has developed an extensive team of post-secondary students that have been working to support and advance health research across Windsor-Essex.
“Our WE-SPARK student volunteers bring energy and enthusiasm to research teams” said Volunteer Network Coordinator, Ryan Palazzolo. “They’re busy, dedicated, and hungry to learn.”
The WE-SPARK Student Volunteer Network students are matched with projects that align with their interests, and that best suit their talents, skills and needs. Some specialities include data entry, collection & analytics, outreach and public education, digital communications, literature review & proposal writing, and more. The Volunteer Network consists of students from St. Clair College, the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry (Windsor Campus) and the University of Windsor.
“We’re training the next generation of researchers, while creating and advancing research and innovation right here in our region. It’s a win-win all around,” adds Palazzolo.
Join WE-SPARK for this virtual information session where you’ll learn about the Student Volunteer program and how WE-SPARK can connect you to trained volunteers who are ready to assist anyone interested in moving their projects forward. Find out what they have to offer and hear from past volunteers and researchers about their experiences. Open to everyone – including students!
