Kevin James interned with Health Cities as a MBA student with the University of Alberta.

What I enjoyed most about my 8 months as a Business Development Analyst (MBA Intern) at Health City was building meaningful relationships between innovators and partners across the public and private sectors in the Alberta health ecosystem. A personal highlight was the hands-on experience I gained in funding application, budgeting and project management for a pilot of home health monitoring technology in support of hundreds of Albertans and the healthcare professionals managing their chronic conditions during the COVID pandemic.
