Collective – group, collaborate, engage, connect, network. Community.
Public Health Collective – a website and blog, intended as a resource to support, engage and showcase the Canadian public health community, both locally and nationally. We aim to feature pieces (opinion editorials, current issues, career advice) relevant to members of the public health community. In the future, we hope to expand to webinars; podcasts; twitter chats.
Reach out to us with your ideas. We would love to hear from you. This is your space as much as it is ours.
I found Public Health after an undergrad degree in Genetics and Molecular Biology. I realized that I wanted to work with people and communities; in public health, I found a way to bridge my interest in the biological and social aspects of health. I finished my Masters in Public Health, and have worked at several not-for-profit and government agencies since. I have a special interest in the health of populations with chronic disease in Canada, with a focus on the aging population. I tend to spend an inordinate amount of time thinking or writing about political or social issues and how to build a public health community. This project is one way to make that vision one step closer.
