Senator Elect
What is your quest? 
To be the very best, like no one ever was!
As your incoming Student Senator, I’ve been actively recruiting members for our Student Pipeline within the faculty. I will strive to continue the advocacy for better allocation of study and classroom space as well as push for better standardization of online testing and invigilating methods at the level of the greater university. In our own faculty, I hope to increase inter-year interaction at events and work towards developing more interprofessional activities.

DSC06287 EDITRIAAZ LALANI
Secretary
What is your quest? 
I have two main goals for my term as Secretary – to help streamline various aspects of PhUS such as meetings and event planning, and to plan a successful GPA.
Additionally, I want to ensure that all of the events and activities that PhUS offers are as outstanding as they can possibly be. From my past experience, the best way to achieve this is to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that communication is open as possible. This is the most optimal situation because it allows everyone to focus on what they need to accomplish, rather than having to play catch up or to follow up on something that was already taken care of.
