The Prognosis Is Looking for Editors!

The Prognosis is an annual McGill student-run and peer-reviewed publication that features student research and articles on topics of social, biomedical, environmental, global, and local perspectives on health. The journal is supported by McGill Global Health Programs (GHP) and the Institute for Health and Social Policy (IHSP).

Currently, the Prognosis is seeking editors (including design editors) for its 2017-2018 editorial board. Students of all departments are encouraged to apply. Experience in global health is not required but is considered an asset.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
