About Us

The SC has the duty to represent the MSS and collaborate with other Canadian medical schools to promote planetary health initiatives. Our goal is to offer opportunities to our members to be active participants in initiating change concerning planetary health and sustainability issues relevant to the student body and the patients we work with.
