College of Nursing part of the action at indigenous games

The University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing was part of a group that provided a strong nursing presence at the 2014 North American Indigenous Games held in and around Regina July 20–27.

From manning the wellness booth during the trade show and interacting with over 3,000 visitors to volunteering at the games health station for athletes, College of Nursing staff, faculty, students and alumni were involved throughout the event. "I enjoyed visiting with the athletes, coaches and their families and I found it interesting these young people were so  focused on their health, took great pride in their identity and respective communities, and expressed eagerness to learn about Saskatchewan's diverse cultures," said Heather Cote-Soop, the college's Aboriginal nursing advisor.
