Lindsay James wins Dal Impact Award
Long before she came to Dalhousie, third-year dentistry student Lindsay James wanted to be a dentist. Her maternal grandfather is a dentist and even before she started studying dentistry, she worked as a volunteer in the paediatric dentistry department at the IWK and as a research assistant for faculty members on a published paper about the treatment of cleft lip and palate. To be studying dentistry now is a “dream for me” she says.
Her background as a varsity athlete and volunteer prepared her well for her chosen career and helped to instill the values she brings to her studies and her work in the clinic and community: teamwork, leadership, community, the importance of getting involved and giving back, finding ways to help those who are physically or intellectually challenged, and being a mentor to others, particularly children.
