Celebrating our own

- June 7, 2006


DalhousieÕs new research magazine Ð OutFront: Research that Matters Ð was officially launched recently at a breakfast themed ÒCelebrating Our Own.”

The magazine highlights some of our best and brightest researchers who have devoted their lives to resisting the status quo, striving to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary. In many cases, their findings are directly related to the ongoing wellbeing of Canadians.

OutFront will be published twice yearly, in the spring and the fall. It tells the stories simply and interestingly Ð making them readable and relevant for the person on the street. Copies of the magazine are available by e-mailing outfront@dal.ca
