A group of 30 campers attending the African Nova Scotian Health Sciences Summer Camp in Dalhousie’s Forrest Building, experienced first hand how Physiotherapists use muscle activation via electrical stimulation for assessment and treatment.

School of Physiotherapy faculty members involved with running the learning stations also introduced camp goers, ranging from grade 8 to 11, to human anatomy structure and balance assessment.

The afternoon was highlighted by a short video entitled, Power Within, which was produced by 4 talented Dalhousie Physiotherapy students. The video, described as “compelling” by one of the participants, challenged the young audience to consider the important role Physiotherapy plays in mobility and quality of life.

The African Nova Scotian Health Science Summer Camp is one of the programs being offered by Promoting Leadership in health for African Nova Scotians (PLANS)*, an initiative that seeks to increase representation of African Nova Scotians in health professions through recruitment, community collaborations and partnerships.

*PLANS is supported by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation, in collaboration with Dalhousie’s Faculty of Health, Dentistry, and Medicine, and Nova Scotia’s Department of Labour and Advanced Education and African Canadian Services Division (Department of Early Childhood Development and Education).
