Christine Carthew

Student

Christine is a Master of Public Health student in Health Promotion at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Christine completed a practicum placement at OCRC working on two qualitative research projects: Sun Safety at Work Canada and Completing the Picture. In health promotion practice, it is crucial to address both immediate and underlying determinants of health. A healthy workplace and safe working conditions are determinants of health, and actions to promote and improve workplace health and safety are, therefore, among key concerns for health promotion practitioners. Christine was excited to learn more about the intersection between work and health in her placement with OCRC. Christine also enhanced her understanding of workplace intervention research and theory-based approaches to Knowledge Transfer and Exchange.
