PART OF THE SOLUTION
When it comes to building back better in health care, Sheridan is #PartOfTheSolution.
Fueling the health care sector
We see health care differently. Through training and applied research we are fueling a pipeline of highly qualified health care professionals to provide interprofessional, culturally competent care. We take a holistic view of the patient, their lifestyle and the multiple factors that influence health and wellness.
We're #SheridanProud to have played a part in the largest vaccination effort in Canadian history
Vaccines were administered as part of Sheridan's COVID-19 CommUNITY vaccine clinic.
Community partners collaborated on the clinic, including Sheridan, the Region of Peel, Indus Community Services, Punjabi Community Health Services, the Latin-American COVID-19 Task Force and the Government of Ontario.
Sheridan staff and volunteers from partnering organizations helped provide non-clinical support onsite.
A true community effort: Sheridan's vaccination clinic ensured no one was left behind.

“Working with partners like Sheridan College, community-serving organizations and the Ontario government helps us create supportive environments for people, with a focus on some of our most vulnerable residents like international students, who have not yet received their first dose to feel confident in doing so.”
- Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel Public Health
