Welcome, Caren and Annalijn!
We would like to welcome two new CHÉOS scientists: Drs. Caren Rose and Annalijn Conklin!
Dr. Rose (left) completed a Master of Science in Statistics at Dalhousie University, and a PhD in Health Services and Epidemiology at UBC’s School of Population and Public Health. Her doctoral program of research focused on contemporary challenges in deceased donor kidney allocation. Dr. Rose is a member of the UBC Division of Nephrology, where she focuses on health services and policy research related to kidney transplantation and organ donation. Dr. Rose will be giving a presentation as part of our Work in Progress (WiP) Seminar Series on May 24.
Dr. Conklin is a former CIHR Postdoctoral Fellow at UCLA’s WORLD Policy Analysis Center following the completion of her PhD from the University of Cambridge. She also holds a research Master of Science from the University of Edinburgh, and a Master of Public Health from Columbia University. Dr. Conklin’s research examines the broader social-level factors that influence nutrition-related behaviours and outcomes among adult populations, with a strong policy interest in better designing and evaluating interventions to prevent and manage chronic conditions. She presented the first WiP Seminar of 2017 on January 18.
