LifeBeat Newspaper aims to inform the students and faculty of Queen’s University about current health issues by publishing a semi-annual newspaper made available free of charge. Although related to the life science program, our goal is to collect student submissions from all faculties, which include articles, artwork, and entertainment pieces. Lifebeat aims to present diverse perspectives on important topics in health and medicine. We hold regular meetings for members to work on their submissions and to discuss current topics in health and medicine. In doing so, we hope to provide our readers with an educational and thought-provoking publication.
Lifebeat Newspaper publishes once each semester and distributes print copies, which are available to all students and staff free of charge at most newspaper stands on campus. Our articles have covered a wide range of topics such as black market organ trading, personalized cancer treatments, depression & anorexia, memory tampering, murderous minds and the science of sexy, to mention a few. These topics are brought forth in various engaging formats such as interviews, opinion pieces, book reviews, event coverage, comics, and more. We also have articles related to MCATs, career options, and the DBMS, which cater to those interested in the Life Sciences.
Students from all faculties and degrees are encouraged to make submissions. We value originality and creativity, and we are here to support writers from the brainstorming sessions to the final draft. In addition to writers, Lifebeat welcomes photographers to the team to help us create each issue. Feel free to email us if you would like more information or to join the team!
