The University of New Brunswick is changing the way people look at health-care through the new Jarislowsky Chair in Interprofessional Patient-Centred Care. The chair, located at UNB Saint John, will be held by assistant professor Dr. Shelley Doucet (BN’05, PhD’10) of the faculty of science, applied science and engineering.
Dr. David Burns, Vice-President (Research); Mr. Michael Doyle, Governor, Sir James Dunn Foundation; Dr. Bruno Battistini, CEO, NBHRF; Dr. Shelley Doucet, Jarislowsky Chair in Interprofessional Patient-Centred Care; Dr. Roy Heenan, Director, The Jarislowsky Foundation; Dr. Robert MacKinnon, Vice-President Saint John
Dr. Doucet will lead an ongoing research initiative aimed at developing and evaluating new interprofessional community-based primary health-care models that are patient-centred. This growing field of study encourages collaboration among health and social care providers across multiple settings to improve patient care and better manage public health resources to sustain the delivery of health-care in the future.

While many of his notoriety, accomplishment and age are compelled to pen memoirs, Herménégilde Chiasson is up to something else entirely – a 600 page poetry project, two new exhibitions and a major curatorial undertaking examining the development of contemporary Acadian art. Any of these alone would be a major undertaking, but for Chiasson it just makes for a January like no other. And, taken together, these projects begin to form a singular autobiography.
His new poetry series Autoportrait, published by Editions Prise de parole, has been launched earlier this month. The 12-part series was written in one year from 2002 to 2003. Each part corresponds with one of the 12 letters in his name – Herménégilde.
