Research Specializations

I am a public health researcher and educator with expertise in social justice and health and integrative health practices. I have been working on COVID-19 in the following areas: policy paper on housing and health; Canada's response: one statement with a national group and am currently writing a report card on Canada; mental health aspects of the crisis; women's issues related to COVID-19; climate justice and other "silver linings" of this situation. I have been interviewed in the media for various issues including: the need for more granular data collection related to ethno-cultural status; community based responses to COVID-19 and other illnesses and more.

I'm doing a presentation on Tuesday May 19 at 1pm on the topic of Integrative Health Practices and COVID-19. Learn more
