Alumni Scholarship – Emily Downey

Emily graduated from École Secondaire Notre Dame High School in 2017 and is currently an undergraduate of the Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Calgary. In June 2019, Emily will depart with the Cumming School of Medicine’s Global Health Team and head to Mbarara, Uganda to gain hands-on experience orientated around community development and health promotion in low-middle income countries. This field school is in partnership with the University of Calgary, Mbarara University of Science and Technology and Healthy Child Uganda.

Through this endeavour, Emily will experience the importance of putting faith into action. She is dedicated to helping build capacity and foster community development through embodying the eight characteristics of Catholic identity.
