The Health Sciences Academy is committed to an Equality and Inclusion agenda. This includes:
promoting Continuous Professional Development that meets the needs of health services staff and ensuring that CPD provision is accessible to all;
making health, wellbeing and illness prevention widely available;
developing and participating in activities which promote health care education to people from all backgrounds.
At the Health Sciences Academy, we are really keen to support students to understand what it means to be healthy, how they can be health promotion ‘champions’ and what studying for a career in health sciences in University of Limerick could look like.
We are creating and building the foundations for our Junior Health Sciences Academy. If you are a teacher in a primary school in the Mid-West region, or someone who has an expertise in innovation and education for younger students, or is interested in developing health promotion among younger students, we would love to hear from you. We want to partner with our community to shape a Junior Health Science Academy so that children can see a career in health, champion health promotion and be leaders in their schools for healthy lifestyles.
