Dear Reader,

On behalf of the 2013-2014 IJHS editorial board, I am happy to present to you Volume 3 Issue 2 of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Health Sciences (IJHS).

In keeping with the true essence of interdisciplinary collaboration, our team has endeavoured to provide a multi-dimensional representation of the determinants of health by recruiting contributors from the different faculties that comprise the University of Ottawa. Furthermore, every abstract that appears in this issue is accompanied by a translated counterpart in an effort to preserve the journal’s bilingual tradition. Although the IJHS has evolved over the years with respect to its structure and management, our commitment to our readership has never wavered. The continued support of our readership has, in turn, strengthened our resolve to continue to improve upon the work that we do.

The IJHS editorial board has been very fortunate to receive the support of a dedicated, and ever growing, peer review committee. Without its members, who are affiliated with the University of Ottawa and other professional bodies, we would not be able to make quality student research accessible to our readership. Our team is also indebted to Mirhad Lončar, the official translator for this issue, whose assistance has been integral to the journal’s ability to showcase research that is reflective of bilingual education. To Raywat Deonandan, PhD, the supervising professor for this student-led initiative, we extend our warmest thanks along with our sincere gratitude. For without his guidance, the IJHS would not have achieved nor deserved the praise that it has enjoyed since its inception in 2009. Lastly, the contributions of the senior editorial committee as well as those of the associate editors cannot be overemphasized. Their excitement for the work that we do has left me in awe of them and, more importantly, has assured me that their dedication is not to be questioned.

My time with the IJHS has been a challenging yet richly rewarding experience. Over the course of my two-year term, I have seen how students have directly benefited, both personally and professionally, from having their work published and I have been privileged to be a part of their accomplishments. While my team and I have derived great pleasure from the publication process, the original works found within these pages have truly invited us to enjoy the delights of research. In closing, it is my hope that this issue will awaken in you a renewed interest to undertake an original research project of your own.
