In 2012, Jill MacLeod completed her MPH in Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. Jill was introduced to occupational health research during the co-op placements she completed as an undergraduate student while studying Economics and Political Science at the University of Ottawa. She worked on a project assessing the gaps in existing supports for Canadian nurses in the context of pandemics and on projects relating to workplace injuries and fatalities, with an emphasis on asbestos exposure and mesothelioma incidence. Jill has also conducted systematic reviews on topics ranging from the comparison of self-reports and direct measures of physical activity, hypertension and smoking, to the use of geriatric assessment tools in oncology clinics. At the OCRC, Jill previously completed a study comparing exposure classification methods for a lung cancer case control study. Jill is currently working on an occupational cancer surveillance project using the 1991-2006 Canadian census mortality and cancer cohort.
