For the Fall 2018 semester, I will be recruiting honours student(s) and graduate student(s) (Master’s or Ph.D.) interested in pursuing quantitative work on the topic of housing as a social determinant of health for Inuit, First Nations, and non-Indigenous urban and rural populations in Canada.  

I may take on 1-3 students interested in exploring the impacts of changing housing conditions for health in the Canadian Arctic; the relationships between housing conditions and access to health care, employment and education for First Nations; and the role of housing as a determinant of health for urban and rural dwellers in Canada.
