Shraddha MishraQueen Elizabeth Scholar in Strengthening Health and Social Systems (2022)
Shraddha Mishra (she/her) is an undergraduate student in Bachelor of Health Sciences program at McMaster University. Broadly, her research foci include workplace equity and inclusion, the extent to which intersectionality is captured within various arenas of literature, and the multilevel factors shaping one’s wellbeing. Shraddha supported the development and administration of the 2019 School Mental Health Surveys, measurement tools arising from a collaboration between the Offord Centre for Child Studies and School Mental Health Ontario. Under McMaster University’s Department of Pediatrics, Shraddha helped scope literature surrounding the resilience amidst adversity of racialized 2SLGBTQIA+ people.
As an outgoing Queen Elizabeth Scholar, Shraddha will be interning at the George Institute for Global Health in India. She will support the Community Action for Health in India (CAHI) project, which is evaluating community engagement efforts for universal health care in India. Through this work, Shraddha hopes to better understand (1) strategies for centring community members’ voices in the evaluation of engagement efforts, (2) the structure of India’s healthcare system, and (3) health needs within rural India. Shraddha will apply her learnings in her future career of using community engagement for health promotion among marginalized populations.
