I am currently interested in topics such as: mental health, long-term care for the elderly, social determinants of health, patient advocacy, transitions of care, and accessibility of health care. My passions are varied and dynamic, and I am always looking to learn new things.
As a student of the Translational Research Program at the University of Toronto's Institute of Medical Science, I am focused on person-centred healthcare initiatives. I aim to advocate for vulnerable patient populations (e.g. people with dementia; people with mental health difficulties), and to liaise with various stakeholders to facilitate sustainable change. I am energized by creative, inter-disciplinary action toward health innovation. A keen collaborator with the ability to learn fast, synthesize information, and communicate effectively, I'm seeking my next opportunity to make a tangible contribution.
