Humber Delegation Visits Grandmaster of Tzu Chi Foundation

December 6, 2018

As part of its ongoing partnership with Humber, the Tzu Chi Foundation is contributing $100,000 to the college for awards and scholarships for students in the Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (TCMP) program.

Earlier this month, a Humber delegation consisting of Alister Mathieson, Vice-President, Advancement and External Affairs, Jason Powell, Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Amanda Baskwill, Associate Dean of Health Sciences met with the grandmaster of the Tzu Chi Foundation, a Buddhist monk, in Taiwan. The delegation presented details of the completion of the traditional Chinese medicine clinic at Humber.

"It was a pleasure and honor to have a private breakfast with the grandmaster and share the success of the traditional Chinese medicine program and clinic at Humber," said Alister Mathieson. "The grandmaster says that the foundation will continue to support Humber and has indicated her continued desire for Humber students to have experiential learning opportunities in Taiwan and Asia."

The Tzu Chi Clinic of Traditional Chinese Medicine opened last month and is located in C105 at the North Campus. Students within the TCMP program have the opportunity to do their internships and clinical assessments in the new clinic. They also have the opportunity to study abroad and complete their internships at Tzu Chi hospitals and medical clinics in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
