Biography

I am a social scientist with a strong passion for a paradigm shift in long-term care homes. My educational background includes a Ph.D. in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Western Ontario, specializing in Health Promotion. Throughout the years, I developed a deep interest in understanding social determinants of health (non-medical factors) and their significant impact on older adults’ health experiences at individual and societal levels. Social determinants of health are complex, integrated, multi-dimensional, and defined as the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, and age. Screening for social determinants of health can improve health-related outcomes substantively. My current research project focuses on long-term care homes, culture change, and the elimination of institutionalized care practices.
