Parmeet Kahlon is a third year nursing student, who is currently working on the Thoughts for Dementia Collaborative as research assistant with Dr. Newman. She is also the current social media manager on Instagram for T4D, where she engages with young carers, their families and persons with dementia to share their stories, raise awareness of dementia and create a supportive online platform for them. During high school, Parmeet had the opportunity to shadow a nurse, after which she realized that it was a great profession through which she could care for others and fulfill her passion for healthcare. She strongly believes in the power of education and awareness as tools to bring meaningful change in micro- and macro-systems. She is serving as the Director of Research and Education for the Canadian Nursing Students' Association at Ryerson University, a student leadership group that seeks to engage and support nursing students. In the future, Parmeet is looking to pursue post-graduate studies in healthcare to further develop as a healthcare professional, and is always looking for ways to participate in improving community health!
