Queen’s School of Medicine is pleased to present the Inaugural Jacalyn Duffin Health & Humanities Conference!
The Jacalyn Duffin Health and Humanities Conference aims to create a space where students and educators of all disciplines can come together to discuss the intersections of health, medicine, arts and the humanities. This conference is the first of its kind at Queen’s and was created by students, for students.
Our conference is held in honor of Dr Jacalyn Duffin, the recently retired hematologist and medical historian who championed the medical humanities during her tenure at Queen’s. Dr Duffin brought incredible energy and life to her lectures and urged students to question everything.
In this spirit, we present the theme of our conference: What Makes Us Human?
Join us in the McLaughlin Room at the John Deutsch University Centre. Students from every discipline are encouraged to attend, and to submit their work.
