The external partner is St Michael’s Hospital’s Centre for Ethical, Social and Cultural Risk with her supervisor being Dr. Emma Richardson.

The opportunity at St. Michael’s Hospital will encourage Saposan to take a critical perspective in analyzing real and current issues affecting health quality both globally and locally.

She will assist her team in developing a model for community engagement to be used as a resource for global health researchers to enable them to better adapt their research to local international contexts and facilitate greater community support.

This opportunity provides her with an excellent example of evidence-based development of programs that target deficiencies in the current system once they are uncovered through critical investigations.
