Clara is a PhD candidate in Epidemiology at McGill University and a Consortium on Analytics for Data-Driven Decision-Making (CAnD3) Fellow. Clara’s doctoral research examines intersectional social inequalities in aging in place in Quebec and explores the role of access to primary care and social support in shaping these inequalities. During her internship in the SE Research Centre, Clara will develop a methodology to evaluate alignment between the classification system for care and health human resource needs of older adults in traditional home care and newer care approaches being used in transitional care programs. Clara’s research interests lie at the intersection of social epidemiology and health equity, with a particular focus on understanding how health systems and policies influence the health of marginalized populations. Her professional goal is to contribute to the design, implementation, and evaluation of evidence-informed health and social policies. Follow Clara on Twitter @ClaraBolster.
