This year I am the Heart 4 Heart president. My name is Megali and I've entered my fourth year at the University of Alberta as a student in the Faculty of Science. I am super excited for this year, not only are my classes exciting but I believe H4H, as a whole, is going to take off! H4H was created in 2017 and was the first Alberta Chapter; that being said, I believe that our team is going to go above and beyond throughout this year not only for the children in developing countries with congenital heart disease but for our own children in our city with health issues. As a growing student group, I encourage all participation!
Hello! My name is Jingru and I am currently a third year MSc student in Pharmacology! While I am intrigued by my research on the pharmacology of anti-epileptic drugs and human neurological diseases, I am also motivated to assist with global healthcare issues through Heart4Heart. As VP Finance for the Alberta Chapter, I do all the bookkeeping of our financial records, apply for external grants, make yearly budget, and make sure we don't run out of money!
VP Social Media
My name is Andrea Dumec and I'm in my 3rd year of a Bachelor of Science degree. In my first year with Heart4Heart I was a general volunteer which led me to my position this year as VP Social Media. I enjoy promoting all our events and information via Facebook and Instagram. In addition to volunteering my time to help the people around me, I love singing and playing the piano. Throughout this term, I look forward to educating my peers about congenital heart disease as well as fundraising to support this cause.
