Reflections on the first year of work

May 6, 2015

I graduated in May 2014 from my Masters of Public Health at McGill. After 20 years of full-time education, it was time to enter the workforce. I began working as the Research Coordinator for the Old Brewery Mission, a homeless shelter in Quebec. As spring approaches, I can look back on this first working year and share some observations and insights.

Reflections from an MPH Practicum in Global Health Policy

January 31, 2014

This past summer, I had the privilege of pursuing my practicum with the People’s Health Movement (PHM): a global network of civil society organizations, health activists, professionals, and students. As a movement, PHM is horizontal in structure and is composed of over 70 country “circles” (national networks of activists that organize together), a series of regional networks, several campaign circles, and a global secretariat. PHM organizes at the grassroots and policy levels to promote Health for All and address inequities in health through a social determinants approach.
