Message from the Interim Dean for the Faculty of Health Disciplines

Greetings from Dr. Pamela Hawranik

Welcome to the Faculty of Health Disciplines at Athabasca University. My current appointment as Interim Dean began November 9, 2020. I am delighted to bring greetings to our faculty, staff, learners, and community partners.

The COVID-19 pandemic presented unprecedented challenges to the health care system and its workers. The Faculty of Health Disciplines responded nimbly to the pandemic consequences in order to continue to provide the relevant knowledge and skills to our learners. Since many of our learners are already working in health care our curriculum was adapted to meet the emerging needs.

We have highly motivated and dedicated faculty and staff who have displayed resilience and who model this to our learners despite experiencing multiple challenges personally and professionally.

As Interim Dean, I am confident the FHD, our learners, and community partners will work together to meet the challenges that arise. We strive together in Transforming Lives, Transforming Communities.
