Announcing the appointment of Delphine Collin-Vézina as the Nicolas Steinmetz and Gilles Julien Chair in Social Pediatrics
It is with extreme pleasure that we announce the appointment of Delphine Collin-Vézina as the inaugural holder of the Nicolas Steinmetz and Gilles Julien Chair in Social Pediatrics in the Department of Pediatrics. A faculty in the School of Social Work at McGill for the past 9 years, Delphine will now be spending half of her time in the Department of pediatrics teaching undergraduate and graduate trainees and conducting some of her research efforts at the hospital and in collaboration with the Dr. Julien Foundation in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
This year, the McGill convocation of the faculty of science highlighted the McGill efforts in Green Chemistry. Paul Anastas, the director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale University, who is well known as the "father of Green Chemistry", received a honorary degree and delivered an inspirational address to the graduating students. Encouraging them to embrass the challenges of the future, he told them: "Change is happening, what we need are change-drivers".
