Wolters Kluwer has donated 25 copies of an internationally recognized book on community health to the Masters in Public Health (MPH) Program, taught by University of Calgary faculty at the Bugando University of Clinical Health Sciences (BUCHS) in Mwanza, Tanzania.
Dr. Robinson Vollman, an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine, is one of the editors of the book (along with Elizabeth T. Anderson), titled, ‘Canadian Community as Partner: Theory & Multidisciplinary Practice.’ Several members of the Institute for Public Health and Department of Community Health Sciences are also contributors to book chapters.
“I was so impressed last year by the value that the students placed on this book as a reference for their future work that I could not go back without copies for this year’s class,” said Dr. Wilfreda Thurston, a professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences and member of the Institute for Public Health. “The students generally cannot afford texts,” said Dr. Jennifer Hatfield, Director of the MPH partnership. “We were very appreciative of the generosity of Wolters Kluwer, and Mr. Dan Renaud who represented the company.”
