Data Scientist session details:

Do you enjoy working with computers or programming? If you are, join our data science career talk!

Cybera data scientist Laura Gutierrez-Funderburk will tell you more about this career and what it takes to land a data science job.

Primary Care Nurse session details:

Nursing is an incredibly diverse occupation. While approximately 60% of nurses work in hospital settings, an increasing number of nurses work outside of this realm. Join Registered Nurses Robyn, Kim and Kim from the Chinook Primary Care Network as they discuss the realm of Primary Care nursing. While acute care works to treat disease, primary care uses a team-based approach in the treatment of disease with an additional focus on wellness and the prevention of disease.
