Promoting interprofessional practice among learners in order to foster collaborative, holistic, patient-centered care


Meet our Program Representatives!


Stacie Ranta-Diegel

Psychology Representative

My name is Stacie and I am the Psychology Representative. I am currently in my third year of HBSc Psychology, minor in Biology. I got involved with LIPSS because I think it is important to have a member on exec actively trying to incorporate the psychological aspects of healthcare into our club’s conversations and events. LIPSS is important to me because as someone pursuing a career in healthcare it is critical to get out of my department to look at healthcare through the lenses of different disciplines before I enter the field. My dream job is a speech language pathologist or a neuropsychologist


Megan McDonald

Nursing Representative

My name is Megan and I am the Nursing Representative on LIPSS. I am currently in my third year of the Collaborative Nursing Program at Lakehead University. I choose to be involved with LIPSS because I wanted to enhance my collaborative and inter-professional skills. In nursing we learn that inter-professional collaboration with other health care professionals (HCP’s) is optimal to provide patient centered care. I believe that LIPPS will provide beneficial skills for any health care student, and will help bridge together a variety of different HCP’s to provide the best holistic patient care! My dream job is to be an ICU RN.
