Kate McBride


Kate is a Master of Public Health (Epidemiology) student at the University of Toronto. Kate’s interest in occupation cancer epidemiology arose from her years living in Northern Alberta in oil sand country where exposures were not limited to only workers. She is particularly interested in environmental cancers and ecosystem health. Kate enjoys writing in the third person as it gives biographical blurbs a bit more credibility. Currently Kate is working on the conceptual framework and measurement tools for a series of occupational sun exposure studies which are validating her anxiety around sunburns and tanning beds.
